Lifeline (FCC) Program History
Lifeline Began To Provide Discounted Phone Service
The Lifeline program was created in response to concerns about the high cost of telephone service and the difficulty that many low-income households had in affording this essential service. The program was designed to provide a subsidy to eligible households to help them pay for their telephone service, and it was administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
In the 1980s, the Lifeline program was seen as a critical lifeline for low-income households, as it provided them with access to affordable communication services that were essential for staying connected with family, friends, and community. The program helped to bridge the gap between those who could afford telephone service and those who could not, and it played a key role in helping to ensure that all Americans had access to this essential service.
Program Advancements To Streamline Lifeline’s Growth
During this time, the Lifeline program faced a number of challenges, including rising costs and concerns about fraud and abuse. In response, the FCC implemented a number of reforms to address these issues, including establishing income-based eligibility criteria and requiring participating carriers to verify the eligibility of their Lifeline customers.
Despite these challenges, the Lifeline program remained an important resource for low-income households, and it continued to provide them with access to affordable communication services. In the 1990s, the program played a key role in helping to ensure that all Americans had access to these essential services, regardless of their income level.
Lifeline Revamped Offer More & Free Phones
There have been other changes to the Lifeline program over the years as well, including changes to the eligibility requirements and the level of discounts offered. The program is currently administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), which is responsible for implementing the program in accordance with the rules and regulations set forth by the FCC..
