Proposed First Qtr 2022 Contribution Factor

On December 13, 2021, the FCC announced that the proposed contribution factor for the first quarter of 2022 will be 25.2 percent. The contribution factor requires telecommunications companies to pay a percentage of their interstate end-user revenues to the Universal Service Fund. The FCC announcement also “emphasize that carriers may not markup federal universal service line-item amounts above the contribution factor. Thus, carriers may not, during the first quarter of 2022, recover through a federal universal service line item an amount that exceeds 25.2 percent of the interstate telecommunications charges on a customer’s bill
