The Telecom Access Cost Recovery fee helps IgLou recover costs associated with interconnecting to the telephone company networks. This includes FCC Universal Service Fund (USF) fees, State telecommunication taxes, and other costs imposed on IgLou in order to contractually engage with the telephone company and Internet carrier networks. This fee is not a tax or charge required by the government.
These fees appear as a separate line item on your bill, currently $3.33 USD as of January 1st 2017, and may change periodically as the costs imposed on us change. The purpose of these fees is to recover our costs in interconnecting with the telephone companies and their networks .
