Lifeline and Linkup

LifeLine is a program that offers discounts to qualified low-income consumers on their monthly landline or cell phone service. This program is limited to one per household.

Link Up is a program that provides a discount on the activation of the phone service.


CTC and CWC have partnered up with the federal government to ensure that low-imcome consumers have access to quality communication service. This means if you are eligible, you can receive CTC’s landline service or CWC’s cell phone service for the reduced rate of $1.00 per month (you may only receive LifeLine & Link Up assistance on landline OR cell phone, not both).

Important information regarding your Lifeline Service
The FCC requires every Lifeline customer to re-certify their eligibility each year. If you do not re-certify every year, you will be disconnected from Lifeline service. Be on the lookout for your recertification paperwork and make sure to return it in a timely manner. For assistance in filling out your recertification paperwork, you may contact your local provider.
