The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have established a national Do-Not-Call Registry. As part of the do-not-call initiative, the FCC requires us to notify customers who use our service for making telephone solicitations (telemarketing calls) regarding the national Do-Not-Call rules and regulations. We recognize that few of our customers use our services for telemarketing; however, because we do not have records indicating which customers may do telemarketing, we are contacting all business customers. If you are a company, individual, or other entity that makes telemarketing calls, it is very important that you familiarize yourself with the operations of the national Do-Not-Call Registry and the rules requiring checking of the national Do-Not-Call Registry as part of making telemarketing calls. Unless you fall under one of the exceptions established in the FCC/FTC rules (such as the exception for telemarketing by charitable organizations or for prior business relationships), you may not make telemarketing calls to numbers included in the national Do-Not-Call Registry. Before you rely on one of the exceptions, you should consult the rules. For information about the regulations, you may visit the national Do-Not-Call Registry at www.donotcall.gov. You can find the FCC and FTC rules governing telemarketing and telephone solicitation, at 47 C.F.R. § 64.1200 and 16 C.F.R. Part 310, respectively.
KPU is required by law to obtain permission from local broadcast stations to provide their signals on KPU’s cable lineup. In the past several years, broadcaster demands for cash fees from cable operators in exchange for retransmission have become commonplace, adding substantial costs to the delivery of basic TV services.
Although KPU actively negotiates with broadcasters in an effort to limit these fees, we may sometimes pass through increases in the costs of carrying broadcast TV stations to our customers. The Broadcast Surcharge reflects increasing costs associated with the delivery of broadcast TV stations to our Customers. These costs may include, but are not limited to, portions of retransmission costs, network costs, and copyright costs.
