At the same time that the FCC released this Order, it released a second Order, reducing the compensation rate for video relay services from $8.85/minute to $7.29 per minute.

2. Petition for Video Mail - On March 31, 2004, Hands On VRS filed a petition with the FCC asking for the FCC to declare video mail provided over VRS eligible for compensation from the Interstate TRS Fund.
