Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 31, 2014 -- The Kentucky Public Service Commission has granted approval to Blue Jay Wireless, LLC’s petition for designation as an eligible telecommunications carrier in the state. Kentucky’s approval makes it the 14th state and Puerto Rico allowing Blue Jay Wireless to provide discounted cellphone service to eligible residents under the federal Lifeline Program.
“Receiving approval from Kentucky is really a great addition to our service areas,” states David Wareikis, Blue Jay President and CEO. “We are looking forward to bringing our high level of services to the qualified residents of Kentucky."
Blue Jay Wireless strongly believes in the mission of the Federal Lifeline program, and as such, is vigilant in training and enforcing the strict rules set forth by the FCC in determining qualified consumers for the program across the country.
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.
