Innovative Increases Federal Service Charge on Jan. 1

As a result of action taken by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that affects carriers nationwide, Innovative Telephone customers will notice an increase in the Federal Universal Service Charge effective Jan. 1, 2011.
The FUSC surcharge factor recovers the costs associated with Innovative Telephone’s contributions to the federal universal fund program. The government mandated program is designed to help keep telephone service rates affordable for all customers in all areas of the United States. Effective Jan. 1, 2011, there will be an increase in the charge from 12.9 percent to 15.5 percent.
Customers with questions regarding this notice should contact the Innovative Business Office at 779-9999 during business hours, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., weekdays and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
