Universal Service Fund (USF)

The Public Service Commission is responsible for the policies and procedures of the Universal Service Fund. The Fund was established under the 1993 Wisconsin Act 496 to ensure that all state residents receive essential telecommunication services and have access to advanced telecommunication capabilities. Universal Service Fund programs created by the Public Service Commission have been developed to address telecommunication needs for low-income customers, high rate areas of the state, customers with disabilities, non-profit groups and medical clinics and public health agencies.

More information on the USF Program and USF Assessments can be found using the Universal Service Fund menu on the left side of this page.
