Low Income Home Phone Service

Phone Service for Low Income Families

As a company that prides itself on helping customers find the best home phone and cable TV bundles and offers for home communication services, Connect Your Home continually strives to be the one-stop national retailer of home services. Connect Your Home recognizes the need for low income families in search of low cost and affordable home communication services, such as home phone and internet.

Customers searching for low cost options on basic home phone services have access to several discounts available to consumers with low income needs as well as those living in areas with high telephone service costs. The Federal Communications Commission features the Lifeline program, available to all Americans, which makes both wireline and wireless phone services available and affordable to eligible consumers who qualify for the program. The criteria for eligibility and discount amount (up to $10.00 a month) vary by state.

Due to Federal rules, qualifying low-income consumers cannot receive more than one Lifeline service at the same time, meaning qualifying low-income consumers may receive a Lifeline discount on either a home or wireless phone service, but may not receive a Lifeline discount on both services at the same time. Lifeline also includes Toll Limitation Service, which limits the amount of long distance calls that a user can make.

Link Up is a one-time discount (up to a maximum of $30) off the initial installation fee for one traditional, wireline telephone service at the primary residence or the activation fee for one wireless telephone. Link Up also allows subscribers to pay the remaining amount they owe on a deferred schedule, interest free. The criteria for eligibility vary by state and qualifying low-income consumers cannot receive more than one Link Up discount at a primary residence.

Both the Lifeline and Link Up programs are available to qualifying consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal land.
