Can I use ACP for phone and internet at the same time?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

I can definitely help answer that question for you. Regarding the Lifeline program in California, you do have the option to use your Lifeline credit towards your monthly internet service. However, it’s important to note that you must choose either internet or phone, as the credit cannot be applied to both.

This means that if you currently receive Lifeline assistance for your phone service, you can opt to switch it to internet service instead. Conversely, if you already receive Lifeline assistance for your internet service, you can choose to switch it to phone service.

It’s important to consider your specific needs and priorities when making this decision. If having access to the internet is more crucial for you, then using the Lifeline credit for internet service would be a logical choice. On the other hand, if having a phone line is more essential, you may want to continue using the Lifeline credit for phone service.

The Lifeline program aims to provide affordable communication services to eligible low-income individuals and families. It’s a great initiative that helps ensure everyone has access to essential communication tools.
