A viewer had a question about some charges on her local telephone bill. She says the Federal Customer Line Charge went up from $3.50 to $4.35. She called her phone company, but says they couldn't tell her why the charge was different. Consumer 6 called the Federal Communications Commission, and a spokesperson says they recently combined two federal charges into one lower charge.
The previous charges were called the Federal Subscriber Line and Interexchange Carrier Charge. Itâ€™s now combined into the Federal Customer Line Charge. The F-C-C says consumers are actually saving money
