The USF rate is adjusted quarterly by the FCC.

Other fees include State & local property taxes, cost recovery fees, and other surcharges charged to Five9 by telecommunications carriers. The Regulatory Recovery Fee is assessed on interstate and international telecommunications to recoup some of these costs.
This fee is a means to help Five9 defray certain costs associated with telecommunications compliance and is applied to all telecommunications charges.
