Additional Information


Texas customers will need to apply with the Texas PUC appointed administrator for the Low Income discount (LIDA). Customers can do this by submitting the LITE-UP form (form must be filed with LITE-UP Texas as per instructions provided on the application)
Once we have received the formed, signed, with the appropriate documentation, or, for Texas customers, receive notification from the LIDA, we'll put you on our government assisted home phone program.

FREE activation promotion is not for customers who have previously taken advantage of this promotion in the past. Please call to find out what promotions are now available to you.

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