LTE Wireless - ACP Plans

LTE Wireless is another LTE Wirelessphone company participating in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Their website doesn’t offer a lot of information about the company, but it does list the discounts they offer as an ACP participant.

For qualified individuals/households, they offer a $30 per month discount on internet and wireless service. For families living on qualified Tribal Lands, the discount is increased to $75 per month.

LTE Free Tablet Offer

If you qualify, you can receive a free tablet along with a monthly discount. LTE Wireless does not mention the brand name of the free tablet, but as of this writing (March 2023), they have an image of the Nitro 8 tablet, so one can assume that is the tablet they offer. This includes free talk, text, and data.

Bring Your Own Device to LTE Wireless

If you currently have a phone and qualify for the ACP discount, you can bring your own phone to the LTE Wireless service. The one caveat is your phone must be compatible with their network. Unfortunately, as their website is currently designed, there is no “Compatibility Checker” page. Therefore, you must have to call LTE Wireless to confirm compatibility.

LTE Wireless States of Operation

Unfortunately, LTE Wireless does not list the states in which it is authorized to offer wireless services. Therefore, it’s best to contact them first to see if you live in a state in which they’re authorized to do business.

Qualifying for ACP

To qualify for the monthly discounts and free tablet, you must satisfy at least one of the following:

  1. Have a household income that is at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or,

  2. You or someone in your household satisfies at least one of the following criteria by participating in or receiving one of the following:

    • SNAP
    • Medicaid
    • Section 8
    • Public Housing
    • WIC
    • Lifeline
    • Received a Federal Pell Grand during the current award year
    • Or if you live on Qualifying Tribal lands and participate in one of the following:

    • Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance
    • Affordable Housing Programs
    • Tribal Head Start
    • Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations

Applying for LTE Wireless ACP Discounts

After meeting the above criteria, visit the National Verifier website and apply for ACP benefits. The approval process may take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes. There are times, however, when approval may take longer. Things like improper backup documentation or a high volume of applicants may delay approval.

Once the National Verifier approves, it’s time to go to LTE Wireless to apply for service.

A Few Things to Consider about LTE Wireless

The odd thing about the LTE Wireless website is several of its links do not work. In preparing to write this article, I attempted to read their FAQs, Terms, Regulatory, Glossary, Complaints, or Privacy pages. Unfortunately, those pages did not exist. The links redirect back to the current page.

Additionally, the website has a counter at the bottom of the page. That counter displays the number of visitors for the current day, the day prior, all time, and the number of visitors currently online. Assuming the counter was correct, the LTE Wireless website does not get much traffic at all. You might also note the copyright year hasn't been updated. It's showing 2018.

Given the facts outlined in the above two paragraphs, you might want to contact them directly to get a better feel for the company. Or, view our listing of Lifeline/ACP providers and select a phone company that might better suit your needs.
