Lifeline Assistance Programs
The Tennessee Regulatory Authority (TRA) designated Twin Lakes Telephone Cooperative Corporation as the "Eligible Telecommunications Carrier" within its service area for universal service purposes. The goal of universal service is to provide all Tennessee citizens access to essential telecommunications services.
