The Utah Public Service Commission grants approval to Texas based Blue Jay Wireless as an ETC within the state to provide wireless service and cellphones to eligible low-income residents under the federal Lifeline Porgram.

When you look at it on the map, you really see that vision starting to truly connect across the country.

Dallas, Texas based Blue Jay Wireless has received approval from the state of Utah Public Service Commission to operate as an eligible telecommunications carrier (ETC) within the state providing cellphone handsets and service to qualified low-income residents under the federal Lifeline program, also known in Utah as the Utah Telephone Assistance Program (UTAP).

“The approval in Utah really puts us in an excellent position,” states David Wareikis, Blue Jay president and CEO, “It not only furthers our business objectives, but when you look at it on the map, you really see that vision starting to truly connect across the country”

Blue Jay Wireless is rapidly getting positioned to provide a strong network of support and education to qualified low-income customers nationwide. With a commitment to integrity, training, and compliance, Blue Jay Wireless will raise the bar by bringing the highest level of wireless customer service, awareness, and responsibility to qualified low-income residents in Utah.

Created in 1985 under the Reagan administration, the Lifeline Program was designed to ensure all low-income Americans have phone access to connect to jobs, family and emergency services. In 2005, as the proliferation of cellphones had increasingly replaced landlines, the Lifeline Program was expanded to include wireless service in addition to traditional landline service.

Available in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal lands, the Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers, and allows for only one Lifeline phone per household. Eligibility criteria may vary by state.
