North American Local is a Lifeline Assistance company that does business in just one state — Alabama. They were founded primary to serve Alabama’s Native American residents, but they do have a free government cell phone plan that’s available to all residents of the state — Native American or not.
North American Local offers local and long distance home phone service, cellular service, and high speed internet service. And, of course, it also offers a free government cell phone program that requires no contracts and no credit checks.
Here are the basics of North American Local’s Lifeline Assistance program:
The Free 250 Plan – you get get a free cell phone with 250 free minutes every month (IMPORTANT NOTE: This plan is available for regular customers only)
The 500 Plan – Offers 500 minutes per month, but is available for tribal customers only.
The Unlimited Plan – Offers unlimited calling and texting, but is available for tribal customers only.
North American also offers a bundle program that’s unusual in the Lifeline Assistance program. Specifically, you can bundle your Lifeline-discounted cell phone service with your home phone service to save even more money. And that’s not all. North American Local also allows you to bundle your free government cell phone service, home phone service and internet service to save even more.
According to North American Local’s FCC application, “North American Local is committed to expanding Lifeline services to the vastly underserved Tribal communities in Alabama. The Company has an application pending with the Alabama Public Service Commission to expand its service area to include tribal lands. According to a 2010 Census Brief, more than 57,000 residents claim tribal heritage in Alabama. The latest statistics released by the Commission show that Alabama had only 27 Lifeline subscribers living on tribal lands in 2011 and there are few competitive options.”
Go for it, North American, but don’t forget all the non-Native Americans who need your help.
