Contracts are boring to read & often have terms that are purposely misleading, from iTunes contracts, google terms to telecommunication services.
The purpose of the contract is to establish the agreement that the parties have made and to fix their rights and duties in accordance with that agreement. While drafting purpose of telecommunication contract is no different than of any other service or product, inherent complications and multitude of telecom technologies make it impossible to develop a subject matter expertise of your legal teams to fully understand the implications of this.
Do you think that sounds absurd? Let’s do an experiment, ask your legal team this question:
What is the implication if “All Transport Services Ordered will be treated as interstate for regulatory Purposes” on your telecom invoices?
If the answer is not 21.2% over-billing, then I stand vindicated.
If over 90% of telecom utilization is intrastate, then you should never have been billed Federal Universal Service Fee (FUSF) and associated surcharges that include property tax, administrative fee etc.
