We wanted to ensure you are aware of the latest development regarding the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) that helps low-income households pay for broadband service and internet connected devices.
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program? ACP is a Federal Communications Commission program that replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. Eligible households can receive:
- Up to $30/month discount on your internet service
- Up to $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer
What’s the news? AT&T and Cricket Wireless will participate in the ACP.
Why is this important? ACP will help make broadband services more affordable for about 30 percent of American households who may qualify. Affordability is one of the key issues creating the digital divide–the gap between those who have internet services and those who don’t.
How do I take advantage of this? ACP began accepting eligibility applications on December 31, 2021.
To find out if you are eligible, please visit the ACP’s website at https://acpbenefit.org/.
