California Telephone Corporation Bond

How much does a telephone corporation surety bond cost in California?

The Public Utilities Commission of California requires telephone corporations to post $25,000 surety bonds.

Because these bonds are subject to underwriting consideration, the price you’ll pay depends on a review of your personal credit report. Qualified applicants could pay as low as 1% of the bond amount, or just $250. Bad credit? No problem! Our experts work hard to get all applicants bonded quickly, easily and accurately.
