Lifeline Program Now Covers Broadband and Phone Services

Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family, and emergency services. The Federal Communications Commission, which sets the rules for the Lifeline program, added broadband to the list of subsidized services beginning in December 2016. Previously, the Lifeline program offered subsidies only for landline or wireless phone service. Broadband providers are now eligible to participate in the Lifeline program and to offer subsidized internet, which can be a wireless service or a fixed service such as cable, DSL, or fiber optic.

In addition, the FCC also changed the rules for demonstrating eligibility for Lifeline services. Some proofs of eligibility will no longer be accepted; others have been added. Lifeline subsidies will remain limited to one per household. Customers will have to choose whether to obtain federally subsidized service on a telephone or a broadband service.

For more information on the Lifeline program, consult the FCC's online guide at www.fcc.gov/general/lifeline-program-low-income-consumers or call NDTC at
