“Nemont” is short for North East Montana”. The company offers Lifeline Discounts to residents of Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming.
In Montana the discount is $9.25 per month. In Wyoming the discount is $9.25 per month. And in the Williston, North Dakota area, the discount is also $9.25 per month.
Nemont Wireless is a company that truly seems to understand the situation confronting financially-challenged Americans in today’s rocky economic climate. Its website days, “Telecommunications has become an integral part of the American economy, society and culture Almost everyone depends on the telephone and telecom services in their everyday lives. In addition to its business and social uses telephone access provides families vital access to community and emergency services. It is hard for most of us to imagine our lives without these vital communication links.”
Of course, just as in all other states and with all other Lifeline plans, you are limited to one Lifeline account per household. Nemont’s website carefully points out that only households “certified by the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services to receive benefits listed below are eligible for the telephone assistance program.” This is a state bureau created back in 1971 to oversee all programs aimed at helping those in need.
Lifeline and Tribal Lifeline are available to anyone who lives in a household with a combined income that is at or below 135% of federal poverty guidelines. In addition to the standard list of federal programs you can see in many places here at FreeGovernmentCellPhones.net, Montana also includes Temporary Assistance for needy Families (TANF) whether it’s State or Tribally Administered; and Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance.
Tribal Lands Lifeline
In addition, Nemont offers a special Tribal Lands Lifeline program that delivers substantial discounts to qualified residents of an Indian Reservation.
Nemont’s website spells out some very specific terms for its Tribal Lands Lifeline Discount, so it’s best that we just quote them:
“Carriers serving eligible consumers on tribal lands can receive from the universal service fund between $34.50 and $38 per subscriber, per month, with the discounts being passed on to the consumer. However, regardless of discount or state matching, tribal consumers are required to pay a minimum monthly Lifeline rate of $1 for their local phone service.”
Also, “Tribal Lands Lifeline allows for up to an additional $25.00 discount, not to bring the bill below zero, for eligible “household” living within the boundaries of an Indian reservation. The customer is responsible for any taxes, fees or additional services.”
In other words, our Native American friends will pay very little for cell phone service when they deal with Nemont Wireless.
