GCI Alaskan Lifeline Plans
GCI’s provides phone service to some of the most remote locations. As such, they are able to offer eligible Alaska residents the benefits of the federal Lifeline program. The Lifeline program offers free and discounted phone service to low-income households who would otherwise have a difficult time affording phone service.
What GCI’s Lifeline Offers
Currently, GCI offers two different Lifeline plans. There’s the wireless mobile plan (Lifeline Mobile) and the wired plan (Wireline) as explained below:
