The Alabama 9-1-1 Board announced the new statewide 9-1-1 service fee rate. It applies to all technologies including landline, VoIP, and wireless connections that are technically capable of accessing the 9-1-1 system.
Public Act 2012-293 (Act) revised the method of providing funding for 9-1-1 service. It replaced the county by county 9-1-1 fees with a new statewide service fee effective October 1, 2013. The Act also repealed a provision that such fees are to be limited to no more than 100 lines per location.
9-1-1 Service Fee Rate
As required by the Act, a new 9-1-1 service fee rate was developed and approved by the statewide Board. For each active wireline and wireless voice communication service connection the rate will be $1.60 per month, per connection, beginning on October 1, 2013.
