For the last 35 years, the FCC has made it possible for low-income consumers to receive access to free or heavily discounted communication services. The service originally started with home phone access, but as they saw the needs change over time, they expanded the program to provide wireless phones. Federal law requires telecommunication companies to contribute to the Universal Service Fund which in turn pays for the cell phone program, administered by USAC.
