Assurance Wireless, a Virgin Mobile company using Sprint's cell tower network, is a local provider of the FCC and CPUC's Lifeline service for cellphones.  The problem is their service for their Kyocera cellphones is incomplete in East Palo Alto, where a high concentration and percentage of Lifeline qualifying households live.

Assurance Wireless is promoted by the County of San Mateo's Human Services Agency, DSBE, and a number of local NGOs, including the Salvation Army and Project WeHope.

Community Beat Meetings for the Rest of 2014

DSBE strongly supports the East Palo Alto Police Department's community outreach efforts.  They significantly enhance the Department's ability to fight crime, improve citizens' relations with the Department, and advance the displacement of illicit businesses with legitimate tax paying ones, such as DSBE and its planned enterprises.
 
To that end, the corporation is committed to being represented at the EPAPD's Community Beat meetings and encourages others to join it.

FCC Complaint About Assurance Wireless in East Palo Alto

DSBE has filed the following complaint with the FCC using its online form 2000F because of the lack of cellphone reception for Assurance Wireless phones in most of East Palo Alto, which its Philanthropy Department has been working to promote.
 
The Kyocera cellphone provided to me by Assurance Wireless under the FCC's LifeLine program for 1 650 906 3344 does not work in most all of East Palo Alto, a city with a high concentration of eligible recipients for your program. 
 
Ironically, the cellphone works better in neighboring Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Atherton, which are significanly wealthier.
