NOTICE TO H&B COMMUNICATIONS
Beginning July 2, 2019, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will increase the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) from 18.8% to 24.4% on your monthly Interstate Access Charges.
The FUSC surcharge factor recovers the costs associated with H&B Communications contributions to the Federal Universal Fund program. This government mandated program is designed to help keep local telephone service rates affordable for all customers in all areas of the United States.
