Universal Service Fund Information
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 Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Bullhead City. A national policy known as “universal service” has enabled Fort Mojave Telecommunications 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.
FMTI charges $18.00 per month for residential telephone service. The local rate our customers pay provides about eight (8)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 FMTI’s service area, the local service rate would be nearly $225.00 per month. For this reason alone, State and Federal Cost Recovery Mechanisms are vital to Fort Mojave Telecommunications, 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 service to you without a telephone line, by federal tariff, would result in charges much, much higher than FMTI’s charge for the telephone and Internet services bundle.
