In July edition of The Connection, we invite everyone to share in the fun of North Liberty Blues and BBQ. We also share the link to the National Yellow Pages Consumer Choice site and information on Careers on Wheels South Slope Cares activity. In the Cooking Corner we have a festive 4th of July recipe for red, white, and blue parfaits. Congratulations to Brian Frese, our July ASPIRE-ing Person!
Notice to all customers:
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has issued a change to the Federal Universal Service Charge (FUSC) from 17.4% to 17.1% to become effective July 1, 2015. Although the FUSC percentage decreased, the DSL rates increased by 31%; this results in an increase of the overall charge.
The Universal Service Fee was created by the FCC. Money collected through the fee by South Slope is contributed to the Universal Service Fund and the amount that must be collected is set by the FCC. The FCC changes both the USF percentage and the base rate which dictates whether your fee goes up or down. Although the percentage in July of 2015 decreased, the base rate increased which may have led to an increase of your bill. The fund helps schools, libraries, rural health care providers, and telephone companies that operate in high cost areas.
We hope this additional information helps address any questions you may have. Please contact our office at 319-626-2211 if you would like to learn more about the Universal Service Fund. We appreciate your business and thank you for choosing South Slope.
