Everybody's Phone Company Announces Partnership With AT&T and Verizon in an $8 Billion Federally Funded Program

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Everybody's Phone Company (PINKSHEETS: EVPH) today announces that through an agreement with local telephone companies AT&T and Verizon the Company now offers two federally funded programs, the Lifeline Assistance ("Lifeline") and Link-Up America ("Link-Up") to low-income customers who qualify. The programs are part of the Universal Service Fund (USF) which will distribute more than $8 Billion annually toward helping qualified low income consumers pay for basic telephone service through discounts and subsidiaries. The staff of Everybody's Phone Company will attend training with AT&T in anticipation of having new customers sometime in May 2011.

Lifeline and Link-Up fall neatly into Everybody's Phone Company's goals of helping low-income families enjoy the comforts of modern living. The Company already has enacted programs to aid churches and non-profit organizations provide phone service for the elderly and needy. Paired with giants like AT&T and Verizon, the company is poised for multiple sources of supplemental revenue through various community outreach programs.

Steven H. Bethke, President, states, "Being a part of these types of programs allows us to take joy in our work, joy which is usually uncharacteristic of utility providers. Through our partnerships with AT&T and Verizon as part of the USF we can provide real solutions to those who need telephone service while knowing that the money is already there to increase our bottom line. We never have to feel as if we are robbing someone's pocket-book or worry about incurring debt; it is with a clear conscience that we anticipate welcoming customers sometime in May 2011."  

Eligibility requirements vary from state to state. For more information on Lifeline and Link-Up, visit
