Fees

Broadcast TV Fee
The Broadcast TV Fee is an itemized fee that represents a portion of the cost of carrying and distributing broadcast television signals to customers. These are not government mandated or required fees and will increase from time to time. Comcast and other providers have broken these fees out so that customers and the public can more readily identify the impact of increases in broadcast costs on their services.

Regional Sports Network Fee
The Regional Sports Network Fee is a portion of the costs of distributing regional sports networks to customers receiving Digital Starter and XFINITY TV 450 Latino tiers of service. These are not government mandates or required fees and will increase from time to time. Comcast and other providers have broken these fees out so that customers and the public can more readily identify the impact of increases in sports programming costs on their services.

Regulatory Recovery Fee
This monthly fee is meant to recover the costs of certain federal, state and local fees we're charged related to voice services.

Universal Connectivity Charge (or Federal or State Universal Service Fund)
This fee for interstate and international voice revenues is to recover the costs of Comcast’s contribution to a federal fund that ensures the availability of affordable communications services to low income and rural customers (as well as eligible schools, libraries and health care providers). Although Comcast is required to contribute to the Universal Service Funds, these are not government mandated or required fees. This fee may change from time to time.

FCC Fee
This is collected and paid to the FCC to cover costs of enforcement, policy and rulemaking, user information, and international activities.
