Telecom Regulatory Fees and Assessments Library

Save countless hours of research and easily manage your USF and similar funds with TMI’s Telecom regulatory Fees and Assessments Library. This resource details state and federal universal service funds, along with other fees and funds applicable to providers of telecommunications services. The Library includes information regarding contribution amounts, payment frequency and cost recovery.

With hundreds of different programs on state and federal levels, managing a company’s universal service fund obligation and other telecom assessments has become a full-time job. Save time, overhead expenses, and research costs with our Telecom Regulatory Fees and Assessments Library. Payments can erode your bottom line unless you know which surcharges can be recovered from the end users, how they are recovered, and whether or not you can get an exemption. Preserve your revenues by being fully informed. 

Regulators routinely add new funds and change the funding levels of established programs. Understanding these funds is critical to all carriers for compliance and for avoiding late fees, penalties and sanctions.

Learn which funds affect your operations, which contributions need to be tariffed, and which surcharges need to be shown as a separate line items on the end user’s bill.

Funds covered in the Telecom Regulatory Fees and Assessments Library include:

  • Universal service support 
  • TRS/Dual Party Relay
  • High Cost
  • State 9-1-1 and similar telephone user surcharge funds
