Sign the Petition Opposing the Elimination of Affordable Mobile Voice Services
We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the elimination of affordable mobile voice services from the Lifeline program.
Adding broadband services to Lifeline should not be done at the expense of the affordable mobile voice services that over 12 million Lifeline customers currently depend upon. Eliminating affordable mobile voice services for low-income Americans would remove their link to present and potential employers, cut their connection to doctors and other health services, and jeopardize their ability to dial 9-1-1 during an emergency.
Removing this safety net would deny the nation’s most vulnerable populations an essential service and undermine the mission of the Lifeline program. As a member of Team Lifeline, I support adding broadband to Lifeline but not at the expense of vital voice services.
