The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a $30 monthly discount for broadband service per eligible household, or up to $75 monthly discount per eligible household on Tribal lands. The discount will be applied to your broadband service, but the ultimate cost to you will depend on the eligible service plan you select. Call to learn about plans and pricing in your area.
All Residential service plans are eligible for the program. Business plans are not eligible at this time.
You will be notified about the last date or billing cycle that the full benefit will apply to your bill (and the date or billing cycle that a partial benefit will apply to your bill.) The notification will also include information about the cost of your broadband service after the program ends, should you choose to continue with the service. Important note: Your broadband service will end when the program ends, unless you request or opt-in to continue broadband service once ACP ends.
