What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

Under the ACP program, eligible households may receive (if qualified to participate):

  • Up to $30 per month off broadband internet services, or

  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
