Internet Cost Recovery Fee

This fee helps defray costs associated with building and maintaining CenturyLink's High-Speed Internet broadband network, as well as the costs of expanding network capacity to support the continued increase in customers' average broadband consumption.

Is it new?

The ICRF has been on customer bills for several years in many of our service areas. We recently rolled it out company wide, so if it's new to you, you probably started seeing it on your bill around June, 2013.

How much is it?

It is $0.99 per month, per internet connection. If you have two high-speed internet (HSI) lines, you will be charged $.99 for each line for a total of $1.98.

Who does it apply to?

It applies to CenturyLink High-Speed Internet customers with the exception of High-Speed Internet customers with Price for Life, Price Guarantee or Price Lock.
