Federal Universal Service Recovery Fee
Federal Universal Service Recovery Fee: This fee is used to recover contributions RingCentral is required to make to the federal Universal Service Fund, which provides support to promote access to telecommunications services at reasonable rates for those living in rural and high-cost areas, income-eligible consumers, rural health care facilities, and schools and libraries. RingCentral is permitted, but not required, to recover these costs from its customers. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) sets the applicable USF rate on a quarterly basis and is subject to change.
