Tone Communication - Free Tablet ACP Plan
Tone Communications (https://tonecomms.com) is a wireless company offering discounted wireless services to low-income households. They can do this because they participate in the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). As such, qualified individuals/families may receive free wireless service.
Although Tone Communications does not offer free government phones, they do offer free tablets to eligible families. The tablet has unlimited text, local and long-distance calling with 20GB high-speed 5G internet. They also advertise unlimited downloads but be advised that data usage above 20GB will be served at reduced speeds. The cost for the service for ACP-approved individuals is $0
Affordable Connectivity Benefits
Because the ACP provides a $30 monthly discount ($75 for eligible families living on qualified Tribal lands), you can apply the discount to the plan of your choice. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Tone Communications has a wide selection of plans. In addition to the free tablet and wireless mentioned above, they offer the following home internet broadband plans:
Monthly Cost: $71
Wireless 4G Data
Monthly Cost: $51
Concerns about Tone Communication ACP Program
After reviewing and writing about several other wireless companies participating in the Affordable Connectivity Program, I find the Tone Communications site to be confusing. Several things are a cause of concern for me. Here are a few:
The above is just one person's opinion. Because I've written about so many other legitimate wireless providers, I would suggest anyone looking to sign up with Tone Communication to do your homework. Contact them directly to express concerns if you have them. Maybe they're genuinely legitimate but have an unfortunate web presence.
Meanwhile, if you want to research other legitimate wireless companies participating in the ACP and/or Lifeline programs, please visit this site's Listing of Wireless Providers or listing of Providers by State pages.
