For people living in rural communities where sometimes cell service is spotty at best, landline phone service can be vital to communicating with emergency services, employers, family, and friends. Those with disabilities or medical conditions and older adults especially require reliable phone service. In today’s digital world, Internet service is also an essential tool for education, telecommuting, entertainment, and more.

To help low-income households have access to phone and Internet services, the Kansas Corporation Commission in partnership with phone and Internet providers and the state government, created the Lifeline Assistance Program. With this program, you may be eligible to receive up to $17.02 off your monthly SKT bill.
