1995 Calculated Interstate and Intrastate Revenues for the Proposed Universal Service Fund and Formats for Comparisons of Different Benchmarks


December 1996




Costs, Markets (Rural), Revenues, Universal Service


Full Paper          Executive Summary



Part of a series on universal service, 1995 Calculated Revenues was produced in response to a request from regulatory commissioners to facilitate a nationwide dialog among federal regulators, state regulators, and the telecommunications industry on options for support to rural areas for telephone service (universal service).  This paper provides industry revenues for the companies that would contribute to a new universal service fund (USF).  1995 Calculated Revenues models the result of various options and allows state-by-state comparisons.


These results show, for each state: (1) how much is paid into this fund; (2) who, on balance pays into, or receives from, this fund; and (3) the impact of varying the percent paid by interstate and by intrastate companies/customers.
