As of December 15, 2014, nothing is changing to the service SMU provides telephone customers. The only change is that the Iowa law used to require Spencer to file a tariff with the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) that defined Spencer's rules and regulations for providing local service. The law has been changed to say that Spencer does not need to file a tariff with the IUB any more. SMU now is required to provide a summary (The Standard Agreement) of their rules and regulations to customers. Here are copies of the detailed information:
