Affordable Connectivity Program Child Using Internet

Do you receive help paying your Internet bill, or could you use some assistance? You’re not alone.

More than 20 million American households rely on the Affordable Connectivity Program for a discount on their high-speed Internet service, but the program could end this spring without urgent action by Congress. 

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a monthly discount of up to $30 toward Internet service for eligible households. The program is essential in our efforts to close the digital divide.

If you do not participate in the program, we urge you to see if you qualify for a monthly subsidy before funding possibly ends. The deadline to enroll in ACP is Feb. 7.

We also request all customers contact your locally elected officials in the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate (HERE) to request they continue funding the Affordable Connectivity Program.  (DRAFT LETTER)
