About Universal Service Administration Co. (USAC)
USAC is dedicated to achieving universal service. This important principle suggests that everyone in the U.S. deserves accessible, affordable, and pervasive phone and high-speed internet connectivity.
Despite pervasive connectivity in most urban areas in the United States, millions of people across the country have no access to the broadband services needed to communicate, work, learn, and access care. The funds we administer exist to fill these gaps in access. As an independent not-for-profit designated by the FCC, USAC administers the federal Universal Service Fund, almost $10 billion available annually to the companies and institutions that make universal phone and internet service possible.
