Maybe it’s time to change the name from ObamaPhone to BidenPhone, because Uncle Joe and the Federal Communications Commission just announced Christmas in May for free government cell phone customers.
Because of the damage the Covid pandemic has wreaked on the lives of low-income Americans, the Lifeline free government cell phone plan has been expanded and now offers free unlimited talk, free unlimited text, AND free unlimited data.
Yes, you read that correctly. Free unlimited talk, free unlimited texts, and free unlimited data.
These new, added benefits are available from EVERY Lifeline service provider and some providers are trying to put their own spin on it, but no matter what name they may give it, its real name is EBB (the Emergency Broadband Benefit).
Here’s a good example of what we mean. Assurance Wireless, one of the largest Lifeline free government cell phone service providers, calls it Assurance Wireless Unlimited and tries to make it sound like a plan they developed on their own.
Assurance Wireless can now offer you our most generous cell phone plan yet — Assurance Wireless Unlimited. It combines our Lifeline service with the temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) to give eligible customers Unlimited Data & Texts & Minutes, plus 10GB Hotspot Data. See if you qualify today!
No matter what self-promotional name they tag it with, it is the Emergency Broadband Benefit. And you can start getting those benefits — unlimited free talk, unlimited free text, and unlimited data — immediately.
If you are a current Lifeline customer, just contact your service provider’s customer service team to opt-in. Just call 6-1-1 on your free government cell phone.
If you are not yet a Lifeline customer, but you qualify, contact a service provider in your state to enroll. You can find all those plans at this link.
Remember that this is a limited time offer. The economy seems to be recovering at a rapid rate, so there’s no telling how long this great benefit will be offered.
