Obama-phones made the world's richest man even richer!
A telecom mogul in Mexico worth almost $70billion owns stakes in TracFone, which makes about $10 for each one sold! The company also makes money by getting people to buy data plans and extra minutes. The phones have been handed out as part of our Government's "Lifeline" program, which has been booming lately. Blah blah blah. Read the article.

The #1 thing I hate about the program is HOW THEY ADVERTISE!! I mean really do we need any advertisement to give shit away. Word spreads fast enough no need to waste extra money on advertisements. Plus I hear people talking about getting 3 and 4 "obama phones" all the time. Someone needs to keep a better eye on fraud and abuse of the system.

Great call. My "government surcharges" were $3.00 or so the last time I noticed. I looked a month ago when I got a new phone and now it's $8.50 or so. Seriously?

Who Pays for the Lifeline Program?

All telecommunications service providers and certain other providers of telecommunications must contribute to the federal USF based on a percentage of their end-user telecommunications revenues. These companies include wireline telephone companies, wireless telephone companies, and certain Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers.

Some consumers may notice a “Universal Service” line item on their telephone bills. This line item appears when a company chooses to recover its USF contributions directly from its customers by billing them this charge. The FCC does not require this charge to be passed on to customers. Each company makes a business decision about whether and how to assess charges to recover its Universal Service costs.

Universal Service Fund

Prior to the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Universal Service Fund (USF) operated as a mechanism by which interstate long distance carriers were assessed to subsidize telephone service to low-income households and high-cost areas. The Communications Act of 1934 stated that all people in the United States shall have access to rapid, efficient, nationwide communications service with adequate facilities at reasonable charges.

The Telecommunications Act of 1996 expanded the traditional definition of universal service - affordable, nationwide telephone service to include among other things rural health care providers and eligible schools and libraries. Today, FCC provides universal service support through four mechanisms

1.High Cost Support Mechanism provides support to certain qualifying telephone companies that serve high cost areas, thereby making phone service affordable for the residents of these regions.
2.Low Income Support Mechanism assists low-income customers by helping to pay for monthly telephone charges as well as connection charges to initiate telephone service.
3.Rural Health Care Support Mechanism allows rural health care providers to pay rates for telecommunications services similar to those of their urban counterparts, making telehealth services affordable.
4.Schools and Libraries Support Mechanism, popularly know as the "E-Rate," provides telecommunication services (e.g., local and long-distance calling, high-speed lines), Internet access, and internal connections (the equipment to deliver these services) to eligible schools and libraries.
