Universal Service Fund

For 80 years, the Congress of the United States has recognized consistently it is much more difficult and expensive to bring telephone service to rural communities and small towns than it is to connect urban centers such as Reno, Carson City and Las Vegas. A national policy known as “universal service” has enabled CC Communications to offer service in accordance with federal law that says all Americans should have access to “comparable telephone service at reasonable affordable rates” no matter where they live.

CC Communications charges $16.00 per month for residential telephone service. The local rate our customers pay provides about 20 percent of the revenue required for us to operate. If subscribers, minus any State or Federal cost recovery, had to bear the total cost of providing local telephone service across the rugged desert terrain of CC Communications’ 5,023 square mile service area, the local service rate would be $79.38 per month. For this reason alone, the State and Federal Cost Recovery Mechanisms are vital to CC Communications, as well as other rural telcos, in order to maintain affordable local rates and support investment in vital communications infrastructure.

The recovery mechanisms are tied to your local telephone line. To provide High-Speed Internet or Digital Television service to you without a telephone line by federal tariff would add $70.96 to $92.39 to the monthly rate for Internet service (based on bandwidth) and $70.96 to the rate for Digital TV service – rates much higher than the cost of a local telephone line.
