TC96-155 Mr. & Mrs. Robert Bush vs U S WEST Communications.

The complainants and three neighbors live in a development known as Alpine Acres and were required by USWC to pay $470.00 prior to receiving telephone service. "In the past few months two residents have had a phone hooked up by USWC....[for] $35.00 each....[A]ll of us feel that we have been discriminated against by USWC and that some type of adjustment should be made to us. We feel that customers on this phone cable should be charged the same hookup fee especially since we all live within 300 yards or less from each other. We can understand why an initial construction fee was charged but now since more customers are hooking up a readjustment should be made. It would seem to us that a fair adjustment refund of $435.00 is due each party and any hookup in the future would be billed a fee of $35.00." (Staff: GR/CH)
