The FCC announced that the proposed Universal Service Fund (USF) contribution factor for the third quarter 2011 is 14.4%. This is a slight decrease from last quarter’s contribution factor of 14.9%.  If the FCC takes no further action on the proposed contribution factor by June 28, 2011, it will be deemed approved.

The next USF report is the 499-Q due August 1, 2011.
