TRUE WIRELESS RESPONDS TO DISHONEST, "GOTCHA" JOURNALISM
True Wireless was recently unfairly targeted in a television news story claiming that its agents failed to comply with rules governing the Lifeline program. True Wireless takes compliance with state and federal Lifeline rules very seriously, and has multiple levels of safeguards to ensure the highest levels of compliance. After conducting an internal investigation into the matter, True Wireless has determined that there is no merit to the story. In fact, the report does not show any actual misconduct by any True Wireless agents, which explains why the television station resorted to misleading editing and commentary by the reporter.
True Wireless has sent a letter to the television station demanding a retraction of the story. The full letter may be viewed here
