Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) Rate to Change on July 1

Viya advises the public of the quarterly change in the universal service surcharge provided by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that affects carriers nationwide. Viya’s telephone, wireless and long-distance customers will notice a change in the Federal Universal Service charge on July1.

The Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) Surcharge Factor recovers the costs associated with the carrier’s contributions to the federal universal fund program. The government-mandated program is designed to help keep service rates affordable for all customers in all areas of the United States.

Effective July 1, 2022, there will be a change in the FUSC surcharge factor from 23.80% to 33.0%. Single line subscribers will notice a change on their bill from $1.55 per line to $2.15 per line. Multi-line telephone business subscribers will notice a

change on their bill from $2.90 per line to $4.03 per line.
