Are you sick of paying ridiculous monthly cell phone expenses?
Well, there is some good news for you!
There is a way to get a free smartphone and data with free monthly cell phone service for nothing.
You can get a free cell phone through the Affordable Connectivity Program, but the government does not provide the free phones; instead, you may get one for FREE as part of the ACP program from wireless service providers like EASY Wireless.
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?
“The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more” – FCC
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program that gives free monthly cell phone service to residents of South Carolina when they join a wireless service provider like EASY Wireless.
In addition, EASY Wireless will give you a FREE new smartphone and plan when you sign up for service.
That is $0 for a smartphone, $0 for monthly cell phone service, and $0 in data costs. OR the same as putting an average of $62 per month back in your pocket.
