Budget Phone was established in the fall of 1996 for the purpose of providing low cost prepaid home phone service to customers who could not obtain service through their local telephone company. Since then Budget Phone has experienced growth and provides home phone service to more than 130,000 customers throughout 45 states. With 8,000 agents providing Budget's home phone service nationwide, it was only a matter of time before additional prepaid products would be developed and offered to agents and their customers. The company also provides some of the most competitive and popular prepaid long distance calling cards, wireless phones, wireless recharge minutes, debit cards and bill payment stations for all of their agents. Budget Phone is headquartered in Shreveport, La., with a location in Bossier City, La.
