Nebraska Telephone Company
A STATEMENT TO OUR
October 20, 1920
EMPLOYEES AND INVESTORS
IN TELEPHONE RATES-IN NEBRASKA
telephone is an essential public service, it' -all
telephone users as well as to telephone
employees and investors in telephone securities that this
Company's revenues shall be sufficient to meet its requirements.
Considered on a yearly basis, our present revenues in this
state are approximately $593,000 less annually than are nec
essary to pay operating expenses' and earn 8 per cent interest
annually on 'the money invested in our property. .
In order to provide for the extension, of ouV
new, people and to new areas we' must obtain ovor $1,000
new money annually irom lnvestars. To cet this money
be able to pay our operating expanses and earn such a
as will, prove attractive to those who have money to
This condition has made it neoessary for us to ask the
Nebraska Railway Commission to approve an increase in our
rates. But even with the increase asked for, our total rev
enues will only be sufficient to enable us to earn approxi
mately 62 per cent annually on our investment in this state.
An increase of 10 per oent has been asked in exchange rates
to be applied as a sirr-charge. "This course has been followed
rather than to request complete hewschedules of rates, be
cause it is impossible under present conditions to determine
what permanent rates should be.'
A change in
rates has been requested which
will produce approximately a 7 per cent increase in our toll
revenues. These changes apply only on person to-person calls.
No changes will be made in station-to-station toll rates.
You are well aware of the increases which have taken place
in wages, material prices, freight rates, fuel prices, rents
and interest rates. The price of all these items and others'
affect the cost of furnishing telephone service. To illus
trate: We are now paying over $1,700,000 more annually in
wages in this state than three years ago, of which only
$750,000 is for new employees added during that period. And '
the cost of materials used in the up-keep of our property has
just' about doubled the last few years.
' Th"is statement
giviilg the public
feel sure that it
is made in accordance with our policy of
full information ab.out our
accepted in the same spirit of
and co-operation that has always characterized the
attitude toward this company.
