Cordova Wireless serves a small region of Alaska — specifically the Cordova and Yakutat communities.
A Cordova representative told us, “You do receive a discount off the phone price. Generally if you qualify for Lifeline, your phone bill is around $3.01 per month.”
Considering that the average cost of the undiscounted price is $35.99, that’s what we call a great discount. It’s not free, but it’s about as close as you can come. As we always say, free is better than discount, but discount is better than full price.
Here’s what you get with the Cordova Wireless Discount Lifeline plan:
Daytime minutes included: 600
Monthly cost: $35.99
Long Distance Minutes: Free
Roaming Minutes: Free
There are some other little items included with asterisks, so let’s reveal them, too:
The Cordova Lifeline Discount plan includes unlimited nights and weekends (Saturday & Sunday & 7pm-7am Alaska time during the week, free mobile-to-mobile minutes (CWC to CWC), any minutes you don’t use one month will roll over to the next month, free unlimited nationwide text messaging, call waiting, caller ID and voice mail.
Cordova will also give you 50% off the regular activation fee. And no contract is required.
If you’d like to apply for this very good program, you must visit either of Cordova’s offices. In Cordova the company’s office is on 2nd Street. In Yakutat the office can be found in Mallott’s General Store.
