PSC gives up on cellphone fee for low-income customers

Special to SEGAZINE

The Georgia Public Service Commission is planning to abandon an initiative imposing a $5 monthly fee on low-income Georgians for basic cellphones provided through a federal program.

Commissioners voted unanimously this week to repeal a rule the PSC adopted last fall levying the monthly charge on participants in the Lifeline program, subject to a 30-day public comment period.

Although the fee was to have taken effect at the end of January, it was never imposed because of a federal judge’s order late last year blocking it from taking effect until litigation challenging the charge was resolved.
