On or around March 10th, Duo County Telephone Cooperative will file with the KY Public Service Commission an increase in basic local service rates charged to residential subscribers due to a Federal Communication Commission mandate. With this change, residential rates are proposed to increase from $16 to $18. Business rates are unchanged with this filing. If approved by the PSC, the effective date of this rate change will be June 1, 2016. We anticipate the average residential bill increase being less than 3% while for many of our members, there may be an actual reduction in their bill based on their calling patterns. Subscribers to our optional Area Wide and Community calling plans will no longer be billed for those services and will have immediate reduction in their telephone bill.  

area codes 2016With this change all calls to area codes 270, 364 and 606 will become local calls providing a significant larger local calling area for all of our members. (Click map to enlarge image of expanded local calling scope for Duo Telephone customers.)

This increase is mandated by recent changes enacted by the Federal Communications Commission which set minimal local service rate levels as a condition of continued receipt of federal high cost support that allows Duo to deploy fiber optic facilities and support advanced voice and broadband services. Because this support is vital to the economic health of our community, Duo had no choice but to request this rate increase.

You may examine this application at the offices of Duo Telephone located at 2150 North Main Street, Jamestown, Kentucky 42629 during regular business hours or at the offices of the Kentucky Public Service Commission located at 211 Sower Boulevard, Frankfort, Kentucky, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or through the commission’s Web site at http://psc.ky.gov.

It is easy to get intimidated by threats like this, and you might be pushed into trying to prevent possible negative consequences. However, do not fall for pressure tactics like this, because if you do, your data will be sold to other scammers who will continue to haunt you.

The Cumberland County Public Library in cooperation with the Cumberland County School district is offering mobile Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader (AR) testing this summer from our new bookmobile.

Mobile AR testing is made possible by a donation from Duo County Telecom. Duo County is providing a Bluegrass Cellular 4G wireless router and data service during the summer as a test model for this very important program. Duo County Director of Marketing Eric West indicated, “We are always ready to help support the youth in our communities. … Glad we can help out and give you a test drive of this mobile technology for future mobile testing convenience.”

Your public library is excited to provide this new capability to our summer readers and we hope that students will use this opportunity to KEEP ON READING this summer.

Questions about the bookmobile travel schedule and where you will be able to meet the bookmobile to take an AR test can be answered by calling the public library at 270-864-2207.

Bluegrass Cellular has launched a new customer self-help center that will more efficiently link customers to the information they need, as well as make it easier for customers to pay their bills.

This is part of Bluegrass Cellular’s broader efforts to reform its processes to better serve their customers.  By quickly and efficiently managing account information such as balance and usage, the automated telephone information system will help a customer manage their account and pay their bill 24/7.
