Information Regarding Minimum Usage Fee (Residential)

Customers of any and all Excel Telecommunications long distance services described will be assessed a Minimum Usage Fee, per account, in each billing cycle in which their qualifying Excel Telecommunications charges do not meet the minimum usage amount for their bill type. The Minimum Usage Fee is the difference between the minimum usage amount (i.e., $5.00 or $10.00 based on bill type) and the Customer's qualifying charges in a billing cycle. Customers billed directly by Excel Telecommunications will be assessed a Minimum Usage Fee if their qualifying charges total less than $10.00 in a billing cycle. Customers billed through their local telephone company will be assessed a Minimum Usage Fee if their qualifying charges total less than $5.00 in a billing cycle. The Minimum Usage Fee will not apply to Customers of Excel Telecommunications' local exchange services or to customer accounts with no call usage in a given billing cycle when the account is assigned to a rate plan without a monthly fee or to one with only a monthly access fee, a fee which is billed only if the customer has used the service during the billing cycle.

Qualifying charges to be applied toward calculating the monthly usage minimum will be derived only from the following Excel Telecommunications charges: all long distance, calling card, toll free, operator assisted and directory assistance usage charges, Carrier Cost Recovery Fee as well as any monthly access fees or monthly recurring charges associated with the customer's rate plan.

*Note: The minimum usage fee for customers billed through the local telephone company increases to $7.50 on May 20, 2008 or June 15, 2008, based on state. This change may not be effective in certain states until after June 15, 2008.

Information Regarding Minimum Usage Requirement (Commercial; Former VarTec Solutions Customers)

The Minimum Usage Requirement will apply in each billing cycle in which a Customer's qualifying Excel Telecommunications commercial charges do not meet the minimum usage amount. The amount assessed for the Minimum Usage Requirement is the difference between the minimum usage amount of $50.00 and the Customer's qualifying charges in a billing cycle. The Minimum Usage Requirement will not apply to customer accounts with no Excel Telecommunications commercial charges in a given billing cycle or to accounts with existing monthly minimums greater than $50.00.

Qualifying charges to be applied toward calculating the monthly usage minimum will be derived only from the following Excel Telecommunications commercial charges: all long distance, calling card, toll free, conference calling and directory assistance usage, Carrier Cost Recovery Fee as well as any monthly recurring or non-recurring charges associated with the Customer's Excel Telecommunications commercial services.
