FCC Ruling

On May 7th I asked you all for some help petitioning the FCC for a fair rate for Video Relay Services (the kind of work I do.) That post is here and for more about what I do click here. 

The numbers are in and well all of that begging  I did and the support you guys gave paid off. We got the rate raised from the original proposed rate. It is still dropping but not as much. The tier 3 rate is dropping from 6.23 to $5.07. I don’t know what that means for the company I’m employed with, but I do know that $5.07 is way better than $3.89!  That is a 20% decress, still not good but much better than 40%. 

Oh here is a breakdown of all the rates (this is a 1 year interim rate.) 

$6.2390 for Tier I, includes the first 50,000 monthly VRS minutes 

 $6.2335 for Tier II, includes min between 50,001 and 500,000 ~Amber

$5.0668 for Tier III, includes monthly minutes above 500,000

Thank you all so much for your support, thanks for your letters and prayers. I still don’t know what is going to happen at work a 20% cut is a big deal but it is what it is and we will see where it leads.
