Straight Talk Wireless Free Mobile and Internet Service
Straight Talk Wireless, a company that has been involved in the prepaid, no-contract cell phone plans and internet arena for many years is now offering discounted and/or free internet services. They can offer this because they participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). These plans are offered to households that meet the eligibility criteria.
What Affordable Connectivity Program Provides
The Affordable Connectivity Program provides discounts of up to $30 per month on any hotspot, tablet, or smartphone plan. And, for those households living on qualifying Tribal Lands, the discount increases to up to $75 per month.

These plans are offered throughout the United States, including American Samoa, Alaska, Guam, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Northern Mariana Islands (unfortunately, too many wireless companies omit these territories).
How to Qualify for Discounted Service
To take advantage of the offer, you must meet the eligibility requirements. To do so, you must meet at least one of the following criteria:
Additional Plans if living on Tribal Lands
*The income requirements for Lifeline are the same as those for the Affordable Connectivity Program. The only difference is the Lifeline household income requirement is lower than that for the ACP. For Lifeline, the household income must be at or below 135% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. You will need to provide documented proof of eligibility.
