FUSC Surcharge 

The Federal Communications Commission approves changes to the “Federal Universal Service Charge or “FUSC” quarterly. This impacts your monthly interstate access charges for residential and business customers effective the 1st day of each yearly quarter.  This charge contributes to the national universal service fund, which helps keep local telephone service rates affordable for low-income customers and customers in high cost rural areas, and also provides assistance to customers with disabilities.  If you have any questions about this change, please call Mid-Plains at 806-668-4420.
