Phone and Internet Discounts
Available to CenturyLink Customers
The Idaho Public Utilities Commission designated
CenturyLink as an Eligible Telecommunications Carrier
within its service area for universal service purposes.
CenturyLink’s basic local service rates for residential
voice lines are $19.00-$22.95 per month and business
services start at $34.50 per month. Specific rates will be
provided upon request.
CenturyLink participates in a government benefit program
(Lifeline) to make residential telephone or qualifying
broadband service more affordable to eligible low-income
individuals and families. Eligible customers are those that
meet eligibility standards as defined by the FCC and state
commissions. Residents who live on federally recognized
Tribal Lands may qualify for additional Tribal benefits if
they participate in certain federal eligibility programs.
The Lifeline discount is available for only one telephone
or qualifying broadband service per household, and can be
on either wireline or wireless service. Broadband speeds
must be 15 Mbps download and 2 Mbps upload or faster
to qualify.
Lifeline discounts include a transfer restriction (port
freeze). This means that you are unable to obtain the
Lifeline discount on service with another provider for a
period of time. The length of time depends on the services
you purchase – 60 days for voice telephone service,
12 months for qualifying broadband service. Certain
exceptions to the transfer restrictions may apply. See
aspx for more information.
A household is defined for the purposes of the Lifeline
program as any individual or group of individuals who
live together at the same address and share income and
expenses. Lifeline service is not transferable, and only
eligible consumers may enroll in the program. Consumers
who willfully make false statements in order to obtain a
Lifeline discount can be punished by fine or imprisonment
and can be barred from the program.
If you live in a CenturyLink service area, please call 1-888833-9522 or visit with questions
or to request an application for the Lifeline program.
