(form must be filed with LITE-UP Texas as per instructions on the form)

Once we receive the signed form with the appropriate documentation, or, for Texas customers, receive notification from the LIDA, we'll put you on our assistance program and you're monthly bill for basic residential telephone will be reduced by up to $12

FREE activation is not available to customers who have already taken advantage of our FREE activation promotion in the past or who have received discounted or free activation from another carrier using government Link-up assistance.

FREE activation is for the phone service only. If you're ordering other services like Long Distance or Internet Access, we must receive payment for that portion before placing the order.
