Decision No. 19-06-025

NOTICE OF INCREASE IN RATES FOR BASIC SERVICE AND CUSTOM CALLING FEATURES

 

 

On June 27, 2019, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued a final decision in CPUC proceeding A.17-10-003, authorizing and ordering increases of certain rates for customers of Ducor Telephone Company.  Effective with the August 1, 2019 billing cycle, residential access line rates will increase from $20.25 to $25.00, not including federal and state surcharges, fees and taxes.  Business access line rates will also increase from $30.00 to $37.04, not including federal and state surcharges, fees and taxes.  The CPUC also ordered rate increases for custom calling features. 

 The chart attached to this notice summarizes all rate changes mandated by Decision 19-06-025.

 In November 2017, Ducor notified customers that it had filed an application with the CPUC requesting certain rate increases.  In addition, the CPUC held Public Participation Hearings on March 26, 2018 and April 2, 2018 to take comments from customers regarding Ducor’s application.  The CPUC held a proceeding to evaluate the application, enumerated as A.17-10-003.  This notice and the rate changes that it describes are the result of that process.

 Questions or comments about this rate increase can be directed to Ducor’s business office at 888-539-5234.  In addition, you may contact the CPUC's Public Advisor at Public.Advisor@cpuc.ca.gov or 866-849-8391.
