About the Regulatory Cost Recovery Fee
AT&T imposes a Regulatory Cost Recovery Fee (RCRF) of $2.97 per month. This fee is collected to cover the following costs:
Offset costs incurred in complying with obligations and charges imposed by regulatory agencies
Offset AT&T's Universal Service Fund payments for the DSL used in our AT&T High Speed Internet service (formerly FastAccess DSL).
Note: All telecommunications service providers are required to contribute to the Federal Universal Service Fund. The Universal Service Fund subsidizes programs for schools, libraries, and health care providers. AT&T recovers the cost of these contributions through a surcharge on your bill.
