Lifeline is the Federal Communication Commission’s program to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers. Lifeline provides subscribers a discount on monthly telephone service purchased from participating providers in the marketplace.
Subscribers can also purchase discounted broadband from participating providers. The discounts, which can be applied to stand-alone broadband, bundled voice-broadband packages – either fixed or mobile – and stand-alone voice service – will help ensure that low-income consumers can afford 21st-century broadband and the access it provides to jobs, education and opportunities.
