We wish to remind you that all telecommunication , carrier cirucit quotes never include taxes. Your overall bill is always higher due to taxes , such as universal life line and other surcharges that state and federal regulators impose.
Federal Communications Commission sent out a press release about a new (expensive tax) to generate funds intended for Rural Healthcare, School/Libraries, Low Income and something classified as High Cost (whatever that is). This is in addition to other tax and surcharges.
