Louisiana: 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 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 Louisiana:
The above list may not be a listing of all free and discounted Lifeline phone providers in Louisiana, but it's a good start. As we come across more providers, we'll add them to the list. We'll also periodically review the list to remove those providers no longer servicing the Louisiana area
Factoid: As of October 2022, of the over 715,000 Louisiana households eligibile to receive Lifeline and ACP benefits, only 24% of them are enrolled. In other words, about 76% of the eligible population are not receiving the benefit of discounted or free phone service. This information can be found on the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) website.
