What is the Lifeline phone service?

Lifeline is a government benefit that provides free cell phone service for eligible customers.

To ensure eligible Americans have access to critical communication services, the Federal Communication Commission established the Lifeline Assistance service in 1985.

While ACP and Lifeline are separate government benefits, enrolling for service with enTouch Wireless allows you to initiate your application for both Lifeline and ACP benefits. Most individuals who qualify for Lifeline also qualify for ACP, making you eligible for free cell phone service.

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program, or ACP, which is a new long-term, $14 billion program. The ACP will replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, effective December 31, 2021, for new subscribers, or on March 1, 2022, for existing EBB subscribers. Eligibility for the ACP will be determined by the National Verifier, administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC).

For more information about ACP, including plans & eligibility, visit entouchwireless.com/affordable-connectivity-program

Is data really unlimited?

Yes, with your free cell service, you’ll receive unlimited data* if you live in California or Tribal lands and you qualify for ACP and Lifeline. Unlimited data is really unlimited in states where Unlimited Data plans are available!

*Unlimited data does not mean unreasonable data usage. Data throttling may apply to users with very high levels of data usage. Our standard terms of service apply.

What is the quality of service?

While enTouch provides free government phone service through Lifeline to eligible customers, enTouch uses the same technology and connections as non-Lifeline cell phone providers. You will receive great, reliable service! Click here to check coverage in your area.
