FCC Order 11-161 mandates the Telephone Company to bill an Access Recovery Charge/ARC monthly to residence, single line business and multiline business end users who purchase local exchange services.
Choctaw and other local telephone companies collect this surcharge on each phone line to operate the PA Relay Service, as required by the Missouri Public Utilities Commission. This service allows telephone communication between people who use Telecommunications Devices for the Deaf and people who use standard phones.
Choctaw Telephone collects this charge to support the provision of telecommunications services to schools, libraries, rural healthcare providers, low-income customers, as well as customers living in rural, insular, and high-cost areas.
The Telephone Company provides and maintains service up to your demarcation point, which is the point of physical interconnection (connecting block, terminal strip, jack, protector, or telephone network interface device) between the telephone network and your premises wiring. Inside wiring includes all wire or cable located on your side of the demarcation point.
