The USF is a government administered fund to support the provision of telecommunications services in rural and high cost areas, low income consumers and to schools, libraries and healthcare facilities nationwide. All telecommunications providers contribute to the USF on an equal basis. The contribution factor changes quarterly and is approximately 11% of end user revenues. In addition to USF, with the new regulations, a few other funds now apply to telecommunications services. These funds ensure service to the hearing and speech impaired and also guarantee that you can keep your phone number when changing carriers.
