Are you aware that the Federal Universal Service Fund (FUSF) fee has risen to 31.8%? This fee has risen on a quarterly basis from 21.2% in the beginning of 2020 to its current rate. It is important for companies to understand how much this fee amounts to for their businesses.
What is the Federal Universal Service Fund?
In short, it is a surcharge assessed by the FCC that applies to interstate and international telecommunication services. It’s intended to subsidize telecommunications services and broadband in rural and high-cost areas for low-income consumers and for schools, libraries, and healthcare facilities.
Which services incur FUSF fees?
Who pays to support it?
Telecommunications providers contribute to the FUSF based on a percentage of their revenues. As a result, telecommunications companies typically pass on these charges to their customers. These can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year or more for larger enterprises.
How can I eliminate FUSF fees?
You can eliminate FUSF fees by transitioning to SD-WAN, which is not subject to FUSF fees. At the same time, you will benefit from faster connectivity across all your locations with more efficient access to integrated cloud applications and increased security.
