Lifeline is a federal program that provides a monthly discount of $9.25 for internet service or bundled voice and internet service to eligible low-income consumers. Tri-CoGo’s lowest cost internet service offering is $54.95 per month (plus tax). Lifeline is limited to one benefit per household. You can only use Lifeline for either cellular or landline service, but not both. To get the Lifeline discount with your Tri-CoGo service, you need to first apply for and be certified, before contacting us about the discount. When you contact us, we will need to verify that you are not already receiving Lifeline service from another provider (cellular or landline), before applying the discount.
