Iowa: Listing of Free Govt Phone Providers
When this site was first created, the Lifeline program provided free government phones along with free cell service or, if you prefer, you could qualify for a discount on your monthly landline cost. However, fast forward a few years, and a few things have changed. Now, with the creation of the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), eligible individuals/households may receive either a free or discounted device (i.e., tablet, laptop, or computer) along with free service.
The plans vary from company to company as do the benefits. If you enroll in Lifeline only, you are eligible for one tier of service. However, if you enroll in Lifeline and ACP, you qualify for broader benefits. The benefits include, but are not limited to a free or deeply discounted device and increased data limits.
Below is a listing of service providers that participate in Lifeline and/or ACP in the state of Iowa:
Keep in mind that this list is by no means an exhaustive list of all the free and discounted Lifeline phone providers in the state of Iowa, but it is a start. As more providers become available, this list will be updated.
Iowa Factoid: According to the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), as of October 2022, only 14% of the 335,058 households eligible to participate in the Lifeline program have actuall y enrolled. That means that 86% of the Iowa population is struggling unnecessarily to pay cell phone and internet bills.
If you know of anyone who could benefit from this program, please share this with them.
