Wisconsin: Listing of Free Government 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 Wisconsin:
The above is not necessarily a complete list of free and discounted Lifeline phone providers in Wisconsin. As we come across more providers, we'll add them to the list. We also periodically review the list to remove those providers no longer servicing the Wisconsin area
Did You Know?: 81% of the Lifeline-eligible households in the state of Wisconsin have not enrolled. According to the Universal Service Administrative Company, as of April 2023, only 18% of low-income households have enrolled in Lifeline. That means they are paying cell phone and/or internet services they could otherwise get for free.
Please share this with anyone you know that can benefit from signing up for Lifeline/ACP.
