What do the new
mean to you?
Earlier this year, the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) ruled
that all telephone customers must begin
paying a separate monthly charge for
access lines. The charges are to be Known
as interstate access charges and are to
become effective January 1 , 1964.
To comply with the ailing, we have
filed proposed interstate access charges
with the FCC. T he proposal calls for these
monthly interstate access charges: $2.00
for residential customers and $600 for
business customers, per access line.
This oustomer update explains
the reasons for the FCC's decision.
What are access lines?
Access lines are the lines and
related facilities which connect your
telephones with the telephone company's
switching equipment. Our switching
equipment actually sends your calls
where you want them to go? to another
telephone in your local calling area or
to a long distance service.
in other worts, access lines give
you the ability to make local and long
How are access lines now
You now pay a monthly rate for
basic local service which pays part of
the costs of access lines. Part of the
remaining cost is paid for with a portion
of the money the telephone company
receives from interstate long ckitance
How does this process work?
AN the money from interstate long
distance calls is pooled Then, the money
is divided among the participating
telephone companies. The amount is
based or how much a company has
invested to provide long distance service.
And a company's investment depends,
generally, on how much its customers
use long distance. In other words, the
more customers of a particular
company use long distance, the more
that company generally receives from
the pool to help pay for access lines.
As a result heavy long distance
users pay the greatest share of
access line costs.
How will this process change?
The FCC has said to do away with
this method of pooling and dividing
interstate long distance money.
According to the FCC, a new method is
needed because heavy users of interstate
long distance are paying far more than
their fair share of access line costs. The
FCC has ruled that all customers should
pay their own access line costs.
How will access lines be paid
for in the future?
The FCC has said that beginning
January 1 , 1964, rates will be set up
?You will continue paying a monthly
rate for local service Part of that rate
will pay part of the costs of connecting
you to the telephone company's
?You will begin paying a separate
monthly charge to help pay for the
remaining costs of access lines. This
will be known as an interstate access
charge. This is not a rate inc esefor
telephone companies. Instea , the
access charge replaces the in erstate
long distance support The FCC thinks
that as a result rates for interstate long
distance calls will go down.
How much will access
To ease the impact on customers,
the FCC has said that access charges
will be phased in over a six-year period
January 1 , 1984 to December 31, 1969.
During this six-year period, both
customers and long distance companies
will pay access charges. The customer
access charge will gradually increase
each year, while access charges to long
distance companies will decrease. At the
end of the six-year period, all customers
will be sharing equally in the costs of
The FCC has said that during the
transition period residential customers
will pay a flat charge of $2jOO per line
per month in 1964; $3.00 per line per
month in 1965; and $400 per line per
month in 1966. Business subscribers
will pay $600 per line per month for the
first three years of the transition.
