Dear Member,

Due to changes in Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations, Filer Mutual Telephone Company is raising Local Rates to maintain comparability of our Residential Local Service rate to federal rate floor calculations. This will allow Filer Mutual Telephone to keep pace with the changing regulatory environment. This will help us avoid potential future losses of Universal Service Fund support so that we can continue to upgrade your network with a fiber optic network, so federal funding is critical for us to be able to provide you with the services that you have come to expect from Filer Mutual Telephone Company.

The current Residential Local Service rate of $16.00 will be increasing to $21.00 as of July 1, 2015. This rate does not include any state for federal mandated taxes, fees, or surcharges. The last rate increase in Nevada was 8 years ago in 2007. As your local cooperative, we strive to maintain rates as low as possible, and we hope that you continue to support us moving forward.

If you have any questions regarding the rate increase do not hesitate to contact us at (775)755-2301.
Filer Mutual would like to congratulate the 2015 scholarship winners.

Makayla Cobb - Awarded a $1000 scholarship

We wish our graduates the best in all their future endeavors!
