Free Government Phones

Delaware: Listing of Free Govt Phone Providers

Delaware residents who are having a difficult time paying their phone bills may qualify for the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and Lifeline programs.


Lifeline and ACP are Federal programs administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The purpose is to provide telephone service for low-income individuals and families. The phone assistance may come in the form of a free cell phone with free airtime/texting and data, or in discounted landline service.

While most phone companies participate in the landline monthly phone discount (just call your phone company and ask), not all companies offer free phones. Below is a listing of phone providers participating in the Lifeline and ACP government phone programs in the state of Delaware:

Keep in mind that this list is by no means an exhaustive list of all the free phone providers in the state of Delaware, but it is a start. As more providers become available, this list will be updated.

Did you know?: According to the USAC, as of October 2002, only 13% of the Delaware households eligible to receive benefits from Lifeline and ACP have enrolled. Of the 106,787 households eligible, only 14,237 are taking advantage of the discounted or free device and service. This information is readily available on the Universal Service Administrative Company website.
