The current discount provided under Twin Lakes Lifeline service is $9.25 per month for broadband with a minimum speed of 25/3 Mbps subject to certain exceptions or $5.25 per month for voice-only service for each month the customer qualifies. A household is eligible for the Lifeline discount if the customer’s annual household income is at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines.

It is the intent of the Twin Lakes to fully comply with the provision of Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
