Never Have To Pay For Data Again

It just got easier for millions of Americans to receive free, high-speed internet at home.

The White House has announced that it has reached agreements with 20 internet service providers across the U.S. — including the telecom giants AT&T, Comcast and Verizon — to offer broadband plans that would be completely free for eligible low-income Americans. The plans provide speeds of at least 100 megabits per second “everywhere that the provider’s infrastructure is capable of it.”

In addition to offering high-speed internet of at least 100 Mbps, they will cap the price at $30 per month, the government will then provide eligible Americans with a $30-a-month subsidy, offsetting the price entirely.

Other FREE Cell Phone Plans

Most people don’t know about these free cell phone plans and discounted cell phone plans that are currently available.

FreedomPop Basic Plan

FreedoomPop operates a wireless internet alongside a virtual mobile network in Los Angeles, California. Their service includes the sale of mobile phones, free data, text and VoIP services and many more.

With the FreedomPop Basic Plan, you no longer have to pay monthly phone bills anymore. You’re only required to pay a one-time sum of $49 which will serve as the activation fee.

The basic plan consists of 500 texts, 500MB and 200 minutes’ worth of calls. If you exceed what you’re entitled to with the basic plan, you’ll be charged extra so be careful of how you spend your data.

Asides from the FreedomPop basic plan, there are other cheap plans with huge amounts of data that you can leverage and they are as follows;

Pay a monthly fee of around $9.99 to $24.99 for 2GB of data

Pay a monthly fee of $14.99 to 34.99 for 5GB of data

Pay a monthly fee of $19.99 to $59 for 10GB of data


Lifeline is a program provided by the American government for low-income members of society who cannot afford cell phone services to reach out to their families, call for emergency, apply to jobs and much more.

Companies like Q Link Wireless use Lifeline to provide free cell phone services to low-income members of society. Q Link Wireless offers the following in their free monthly plan:

Free monthly data (4.5 GB)

Unlimited texting

Free monthly unlimited minutes

However, you must have a phone to qualify for the Lifeline program.

Here are the states that are eligible for the lifeline program:

Michigan, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Maine, Arkansas, Missouri, Washington, South Carolina, Georgia, Wisconsin, Puerto Rico, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Colorado, Idaho, Ohio, Minnesota, Iowa, Hawaii, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Maine, Texas, Kansas, Maryland, Nevada, Puerto Rico, Utah and West Virginia.

Ting Mobile

Ting burst into the scene with an affordable cell phone plan called Flex which allowed users to only pay for what they use instead of the monthly payment.

This plan made Ting Mobile so popular that it became the first choice for many cell phone service users.

With Ting, you can always know the amount of data that you have used on your phone because their service comes with a tracker that tracks the number of messages, calls, data and many more so you can know what your bill will be even before you get the official bill.

Currently, a line goes for $6, while you’ll get 100 minutes for $3, 100 texts for $2 and $3 for 100MB of data.

So for instance, if you have 3 phones in your household, you’ll be required to pay $18 monthly to keep the three lines. Then if the three lines use a combined talk minute of between 501 and 1000; you’ll pay an additional monthly fee of $18.

Furthermore, if you send between 1001 to 2000 texts via the 3 lines in 30 days, that’s an additional $8. Also, if the three lines use a combined total of 1.1GB and 2GB data in 30 days, that’s an additional $20 monthly fee.

At the end of the day, your average bill for each phone will be $21.33.

Bear in mind that with Ting Mobile, you’ll only pay for what you use so if you make no calls in one month, you won’t be charged for minutes not used.
