Free Press Welcomes Proposed Lifeline Reforms

WASHINGTON - On Tuesday, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Tom Wheeler circulated a proposal to modernize the agency’s Lifeline program to help low-income households gain access to high-speed Internet services.

In a blog post Chairman Wheeler and Commissioner Mignon Clyburn write that their proposal would enable Lifeline participants to use the program’s $9.25 monthly subsidy for standalone mobile or fixed broadband, or a bundle of broadband and voice services.
