Your first bill may be larger than normal because WRT bills one month in advance (except for Long Distance charges). When you start your new services, charges will appear from the date you started service through the end of the next month’s billing cycle. For example, if you start a new service on July 12, you will see charges on your first bill from July 12 through August 31. Charges and fees will be prorated to reflect the partial month. Your bill shows these dates of service in the “Effective Date” column.
- 911 Surcharge: A local government-mandated charge to fund emergency 911 services.
- Federal Access Charge: A flat monthly charge, established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
- Telecom Relay Service Fund: A state charge used to fund relay centers and special equipment to assist the hearing and speech impaired.
- Federal Universal Service Line Charge: A flat monthly charge, established by the FCC, assessed to bring affordable phone service to all Americans, regardless of where they live.
- Federal, State, and Local Taxes: These charges are imposed according to government guidelines and passed on the the appropriate agencies.
