COVINGTON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Wireless announces it is doubling available minutes for its subscribers nationwide. It will now provide 500 free minutes per month of subsidized cellphone service to eligible low-income residents in the 29 states in which it operates, including Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands (excluding California and Oklahoma, where calling plans are unlimited). This industry-leading plan is effective for the duration of the subscriber’s service.
“In doubling minutes for our subscribers, we are exceeding the industry standard to reflect our commitment to offering the best service possible,” said William Curry, president of Life Wireless. “We are dedicated to ensuring our subscribers have access to doctors, family members, emergency service providers, as well as employers and other critical contacts.”
Life Wireless provides phone service through the federal Lifeline program, created by Congress in 1985 to ensure that all Americans have access to quality telephone service. To be eligible for the Lifeline program, potential subscribers must take part in a federal assistance program such as Medicaid or Food Stamps, or earn no more than 135 percent of the federal poverty level. Subscribers may not receive service from more than one Lifeline carrier at the same time.
Life Wireless is committed to preserving the integrity of the federal Lifeline program. It delivers affordable telephone service to eligible low-income families and individuals, and performs extensive checks to verify subscribers qualify, as well as extensive representative training and oversight to ensure that company policies are upheld.
