Section 760. Funding for public interest pay telephones

3 AAC 53.760. Funding for public interest pay telephones

(a) Financial support required for a public interest pay telephone is funded from disbursements of the Alaska Universal Service Fund (AUSF).

(b) An incumbent local exchange carrier assigned public interest pay telephone responsibility will be given monthly compensation from the AUSF for each public interest pay telephone based on the actual net cost of providing the service.

(c) Actual net cost is equal to allowable costs less all revenues received from the public interest pay telephone, including revenues imputed by the commission. Allowable costs include a reasonable allocation of operating expenses, depreciation, taxes, and a reasonable return on invested capital, subject to annual commission review. Location rental is not an allowable cost unless specifically authorized by the commission.

(d) The commission will establish by order the process for annual review of the funding requirements for public interest pay telephones.

(e) An incumbent local exchange carrier providing public interest pay telephone service shall make a reasonable attempt to obtain revenues from available sources including federal dial-around compensation, local coin calls, and aggregator commissions from long distance carriers.
