On June 30, 2020, the FCC released an Order establishing the per-minute compensation rates to be paid for interstate and internet-based telecommunications relay services (TRS) from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. The Order also establishes the total size of the TRS Fund for the year and the percentage of intrastate, interstate, and international revenue that covered service providers must contribute to the TRS Fund.
