Why Free Government Cell Phone Service - Montana?
More and more, there is awareness of how critical certain services are that used to be considered a luxury. In our technology-savvy world, many schools, doctors, dentists, employers, and more use email or text to reach out. Those without internet or cell phone service are at a disadvantage.
As an example, schools today are consistently using technology to send out notifications, give grades, sign up for specific classes and clubs, or even just to see the assignment of the day. Students without ready access to the internet have to travel to a library to do work or check on notes.
Another case of this is when applying for jobs. Today's employers are more likely to advertise and take applications online. Beating the streets looking for a job often means you either can't find one, or the one you find is low paying or for an unstable company. Although this isn't always the situation, it happens quite often.
Landline home phones are sometimes just as expensive as a cell phone service, or bundled with a cable provider making it cost prohibitive. It is common for people struggling with finances to not have a home phone. In an emergency, such as an injury or fall, being able to call 911 immediately may make all the difference in the world. Minutes without help can lead to permanent damage or even death. This is particularly important for senior citizens. The ACP service is free, so a landline isn't necessary. This means you will save the money you are currently paying for a landline.
So the government created the ACP program to bridge the gap and keep Americans connected.
