Link Up helps households pay the installation charge for telephone service. This program pays some of the one-time cost of either installing local service in your home or activating wireless phone service. Link Up does not cover the cost of wiring inside your home or offset the cost of purchasing a wireless phone.
How much will I save by using Link Up?
Link Up will pay 50% of the first $60 of charges for the activation of telephone service up to $30. Qualified residents of Tribal Lands may receive an additional discount of up to $70 to cover 100% of the charges between $60 and $130.

How do I apply for Link Up?
To apply for Link Up you will follow the same application process as Lifeline and provide the same proof of eligibility as Lifeline. Being a Lifeline or Link Up customer does not protect you from being disconnected if you fail to pay your telephone bill.
