BlueJay Wireless, a company who works to bring every access to the safety and convenience of wireless service, has been approved by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission as an eligible telecommunications carrier. This approval will allow Blue Jay Wireless to provide discounted cell phone service to eligible residents under the federal Lifeline Program.
“Since 1985, the Lifeline program has provided a discount on phone service for qualifying low-income consumers to ensure that all Americans have the opportunities and security that phone service brings, including being able to connect to jobs, family and emergency services. In 2005, Lifeline discounts were made available to qualifying low-income consumers on pre-paid wireless service plans in addition to traditional landline service,” the FCC explained.
Safelink Wireless, Assurance Wireless, Budget Mobile and Reachout Wireless are all Lifeline phone service providers. These providers are part of or receive help from other corporate phone service providers such as, Verizon, Virgin Mobile and Nexus and use their towers located in the 38 states that participate in this federal program to provide service to eligible candidates.
