FCC Chairman Pai Responds to Congress on Lifeline
Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai sent letters to Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) and six other members of Congress and Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and 67 members of Congress on June 1, 2018, to respond to their letters regarding the Lifeline program. Chairman Pai said the 2017 Lifeline Order increased consumer choice by eliminating restrictions that barred Lifeline consumers from changing Lifeline providers for a year and protected consumers by barring low-quality services that offered mobile broadband in theory, but failed to do so in practice. Chairman Pai also answered specific questions on the Lifeline National Verifier.
