Cordova Wireless Communications

Cordova Wireless is a company in Alaska that serves a small region. It serves the Yakutat and the Cordova communities.

When we talked to a representative of Cordova, they indicated that you don't receive a discount off of the phone price. If you qualify for Lifeline assistance, then the phone bill is going to be around $3 per month. This is a considerable discount since the undiscounted price is around $35.99. It's not free but it is very close. Here is what you were going to get with your Cordova Wireless Discounted Lifeline plan:

· A monthly cost of $35.99

· 600 daytime minutes

· Your long-distance minutes are free

· The roaming minutes are free

There are some other items which are included which we will review here.

With the Cordova Lifeline discount plan, you get unlimited weekends and nights. Saturday and Sunday are included and 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Alaska time during the week. You get free mobile to mobile and minutes and any minutes that you're not using one month will roll into the next month. You get call waiting, free unlimited Nationwide text messaging, voice mail, and caller ID. You get 50% off the regular activation fee from Cordova and you don't have to sign a contract.

If you wish to apply for the program, then you can do this at the Cordova office. This office is located on 2nd Street. At the Mallot’s General Store you can apply in Yukatat.
