The Lifeline Program
Lifeline is the FCC’s program to help make communications services more affordable for low-income consumers. Lifeline provides subscribers a discount on qualifying broadband Internet service, monthly telephone service, or bundled voice-broadband packages purchased from participating wireline or wireless providers. The discount helps ensure that low-income consumers can afford 21st-century broadband and the access it provides to jobs, healthcare, and educational resources. As Coastal Fiber rolls out our services, we will provide Lifeline applications and guidelines so that we may begin making eligibility determinations.
