New Hampshire: Listing of Free Government Phone Providers
New Hampshire residents who are having a difficult time paying their phone bills may qualify for the New Hampshire Lifeline program.Lifeline is a federal program 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 offering free government phones in the state of New Hampshire:
The above list may not include all companies providing free service in New Hampshire, but it's a start. As we become aware of additional companies, they'll be added to the list. Similarly, if the companies no longer operate in the state, we'll delete them.
Note: New Hampshire is one of the states subject to the National Verification process. As a result, residents can apply for Lifeline benefits using the National Verification portal.
Discounted Phone Line Phase Out
FYI: According to the Federal Communications Commission, the monthly Lifeline landline phone discounts are being phased out. By December 1, 2021 discounted phone (voice) service will no longer be available. The $9.25 monthly discount for broadband (internet) will remain constant, but the voice discount is being phased out is as follows:
The rationale is probably because more and more people are opting to use cellular service instead of landlines. Unfortunately, those who prefer landlines will either be forced to get a free cell phone or foot the entire monthly landline cost themselves.
