Union Wireless Lifeline and ACP Plans
Union Wireless is a family-owned wireless phone company that services the Rocky Mountain region. They believe in being earnest, purpose-driven, and humble as part of their core values. These values are not often found in many of the current wireless phone companies. Unfortunately, it's not just wireless companies lacking the above values.
As part of its efforts to help low-income families, Union Wireless participates in the Federal Affordable Connectivity (ACP) and Lifeline programs. These programs offer discounted wireless/internet service to qualified individuals/families.
Lifeline/ACP Brief Overview
The Lifeline Program provides a monthly discount of up to $9.25 per month for either wireless or landline service to qualified families. For families living on tribal lands, the discount increases up to $34.25.
The Affordable Connectivity Program offers discounts of up to $30 a month. And for families living on Qualified Tribal Lands, the discount is $75 a month. These discounts can be applied to any of Union Warless' plans as outlined below:
Union Wireless Plans
Prices exclude taxes/fees and include paperless billing and auto pay.
Internet and Bundled Plans
Union Wireless offers fiber-optic internet in Bridger Valley, WY, Saratoga, WY, Manila, UT and Pinedale, WY. They are constantly upgrading the network, so it's best to check the website to see if the network has been extended to your area.
Qualifying for Federal Discounts
To qualify for the discounts, you must enroll in Lifeline and/or the Affordable Connectivity Programs. You may enroll in both. The qualification criteria are as follows:
Enrolling in the Programs
After confirming that you meet the eligibility criteria, the next thing to do is gather the necessary documents. You'll need to provide proof of eligibility when submitting your application. The USAC has a comprehensive list of acceptable forms of proof documents on its website.
If you apply online, approval is almost immediate. As expected, using the mail will take longer. However, once you receive approval, you're all set.
The next step is downloading and completing Union Wireless' Affordable Connectivity Program Form. Bring that form, a copy of your approval, and a copy of the National Verifier application to the Union Wireless location. Or, if you prefer, you can email the documentation to email@example.com
After Union Wireless approves your application, the discount is credited to your account in the first billing cycle after your application was approved.
Better Business Bureau
I'm impressed with the Union Wireless core statement. However, I also took a little time to look up their rating on the Better Business Bureau. They have an A+ rating. You can't ask for better than that!
There were a few closed complaints against the company, but in the grand scheme of things, five complaints in the past three years are impressive compared to many other wireless companies.
