Promises to be a good discussion from NDIA (National Digital Inclusion Alliance)…
The addition of broadband service to Lifeline occurred in December. NDIA affiliates spend a lot of time and energy searching for and keeping track of low-cost broadband offers for their community members. We are at the very early stages of implementation of the new Lifeline program and this webinar is a check-in for where we are now and the current trajectory for the modernization changes.
Save the date now for a conversation about Lifeline broadband featuring Olivia Wein, attorney with the National Consumer Law Center.
This special NDIA webinar will take place…
February 21, 2017
No RSVP is required.
I’ll set the stage with an update on low-cost broadband offers available, how the different offers were mandated, and how you can find information on the offers. Olivia will discuss:
- Which ISPs must offer a Lifeline broadband service? How does one determine if an ISP has a Lifeline obligation and in what geographic regions must they provide service?
- Who else can be a Lifeline Broadband Provider?
- What are the minimum service standards for wireless and wireline providers?
- How does one apply for Lifeline? What is the current process for signing up and how will that change when the verification platform is live? What are the timelines for the new enrollment process?
Please join us for this important discussion!
