Paul Bunyan Communications joins FCC for “Lifeline Awareness Week”

This is Lifeline Awareness Week, with Paul Bunyan Communications joining the FCC in spreading information about the program. Lifeline is an FCC program designed to make communication services more affordable for low-income consumers.

It can provide up to a $9.25 monthly discount on qualifying voice and broadband services and up to $34.25 per month for eligible subscribers on tribal lands.

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a discount to eligible households of up to $30 per month for broadband, and up to $75 for eligible households on tribal lands.

Paul Bunyan Communications CEO and General Manager Gary Johnson said, “These programs help those struggling to afford internet services get and stay connected!”

“We want to make sure all of our membership and those who live within our service area know about [these programs] and the benefit they can provide.”
