FCC USF contribution rate changes for Genesys Cloud Voice
Genesys Cloud Voice customers will see an increase on invoices beginning in July 2019 and continuing through 2019 Q3. The increase is due to an FCC Universal Service Fund (USF) contribution factor increase of 5.6 percentage points (18.8% to 24.4%) for 2019 Q3. Because it is the largest increase in the USF program history, Genesys is communicating this increase to Genesys Cloud Voice customers. For more information, see Universal Service fact sheet and Historical USF contribution rate changes on the FCC website.
