About the Federal Universal Service Fund (USF)

The Federal Universal Service Fund (FUSF) is a U.S. government-administered program to subsidize telecommunications services and broadband in rural and high-cost areas, for low-income consumers and for schools, libraries, and healthcare facilities.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires telecommunications providers or companies offering telecommunications services (including audio conferencing services like OpenVoice) to contribute into the fund. FUSF rates are set by the FCC on a quarterly basis and FUSF collected on your invoice is subject to change.

If you have FUSF charges on your bill and have questions, select Contact Support.
