Discount On Phone Service Under the Federal Communication Commission’s Link-up America and Lifeline programs, low-income households seeking telephone service are given a discount on local connection charges, and may be able to pay installment payments on the remaining charge. Lifeline provides qualified consumers with a discount on monthly charges for their primary home phone line, even if it’s a cell phone. If you qualify for this program, Lifeline can save you at least $10 a month on your phone bills, depending on what state you live in and which phone company in your area provides this program. Some states provide more discounts to make local telephone service even more affordable, including some which offer a free cell phone with 200 minutes and 100 texts! To determine if your state offers these additional discounts, contact http://www.usac.org or call 1-888-641-8722; or your state’s public utility commission, www.naruc.org commissions.cfm. Link-Up lowers the cost eligible consumers pay for setting up new phone service at their home, including cell phone service. Link-Up pays up to $30.00 of a qualified consumer’s home phone startup fees (even if it’s a cell phone), not including the cost of the phone. Link-Up also lets consumers borrow up to $200 of set-up fees, interest-free, for up to one year. Eligibility for a family of 4 is $30,173.
