Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program
Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) -- are two programs that were both created by the federal government to help make mobile phone and internet connection more affordable to eligible households.
To make things easier for you, EASY Wireless has combined the benefits of these two programs so that you can receive the best plan available in your area, in addition to a free cell phone.
The government established Lifeline in the 80s as a program to help lower the cost of home phone services. It expanded to include mobile phone service in 2009.
Launched more recently, the Affordable Connectivity Program, or ACP, is a government assistance program aimed at helping people from eligible households lower the cost of high-speed internet.
After combining the benefits of these two programs, EASY Wireless offers their Kentucky customers the following:
