CARROLLTON, Texas, July 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Jay Wireless is proud to announce the addition of North Dakota to its list of states that are serviced by Blue Jay through the Lifeline Program. Customers who qualify for the Lifeline Program can utilize the Online Enrollment Process by visiting Blue Jay's website and completing the application.
North Dakota had a low poverty rate compared to the rest of the country, according to TalkPoverty.org in their 2014 Report. With a population of just under 700,000 in the state, almost 12% of its residents fall under the poverty line. That is not a huge number, and is well below the national average, but there is still a need. North Dakota also has plans available from Blue Jay for Tribal areas for those who qualify. That is where the Lifeline Program helps. Blue Jay provides service to 18 states currently to help connect those in need with family, friends and employment opportunities.
Blue Jay Wireless General Counsel Melissa Slawson shares, "The addition of North Dakota marks more than just an expansion of our service territory; it marks an extension in our ability to provide affordable wireless service to qualified Americans and an opportunity for Blue Jay to extend its mission statement to more communities in need."
