What is The Lifeline Program

Since 1985, the Lifeline program  has provided FREE or discounted phone services for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services.

Providing FREE Talk, Text and Data

Easy Wireless has been a provider of the Lifeline phone program for over 20 years and helped hundreds of thousands of customers get connected to friends, family and lifesaving services like 911.

We have now added the EBB government program to give our customers even more benfits to help them stay connected.
