Federal Universal Service Charge $20.29 on just one line!
So my wife and I upgraded to iPhone 5s, and I added a line. I just got my bill to find out I'm paying $20.29 in "Federal Universal Service Charge", just for my line. Her line is $3.51 for the same fee.
Just before upgrading, I paid $3.64 for this fee.
The account rep I spoke to did not know why it was so much. Any ideas? My wife though it might be because I have the "$4.00 per month international plan" on my line.
Total taxes and regulatory fees for my cell phone bill is $32.50 for two lines, when it used to be $7.10 for the single line. Hmmmm

Thanks so much for your post. Because you made changes to your account, i.e. added a line, your bill will be higher due to prorated charges, advanced billing, etc. therefore increasing the FUSC, as it is a percentage calculated on all telecommunications charges.
