Why is a phone line required when I’m only interested in internet services?

Westex Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (Westex) is a rural telephone service provider regulated by the Public Utility Commission of Texas and the Federal Communications Commission. Westex receives high cost support and Texas Universal Service support based on the number of telephone lines served as well as the cost of providing those lines. Current law does not provide those types of support for Internet-only lines. A rural Westex customer can have an Internet-only line, but the regulations require that Westex charge what it actually costs to provide that service, which is currently more than $200.00 per month.

Capital Credits

Wes-Tex Telephone Cooperative, Inc. is a member-owned cooperative.  On a calendar year basis, the Cooperative calculates the amount of regulated net income to allocate to its members by subtracting expenses related to providing telephone, Internet and other regulated services from related revenues for those services.  Each member is allocated a portion of the regulated net income based a ratio of the amount each member is billed for telephone and internet service compared to the total of all members’ telephone and internet service billings for the calendar year.  Each member’s allocated portion is called patronage capital credits (“Capital Credits” or “Patronage Capital”).  Each member’s capital credits are recorded in individual accounts until such time as the board of directors determines it is feasible to retire capital credits and that such retirements are permitted by the Cooperative’s bylaws and any loan covenants that may be in effect.  The annual patronage capital statements sent to members are not an immediate promise to refund capital credits, nor are they a bill that the members owe.

Is there an early termination fee?

Please contact WesTex to review your account services.

Can the due date of my bill be changed?

No.
