The FCC’s most recent rulemaking regarding Inmate Calling Services (‘ICS’) was finalized on August 1st, 2021. This new rulemaking brings several important changes in how Inmate Telephone Providers can administer their service, including new ‘caps’ on calling rates and ancillary fees, but fortunately chose not to regulate commission payments that are mandated by local or state government.  We will help you understand the ruling and how to minimize any impact to your budgets.
