Facility Relocation Cost Recovery Fee

This charge is assessed in several states to recover the cost when government entities require that CenturyLink's network facilities and lines be relocated, such as when new roads are established or highways are widened.

How is it calculated?

We take the cost of required relocations for the prior year and divide by the number of lines provided to business and residential customers. Each month, a portion of the total for each line is applied to the bill. As a result, these charges can be expected to fluctuate or even disappear, year to year, as dictated by the needs of your state's infrastructure.
