Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) to help low-income households pay for internet service. The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households.

The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount per household.

Note: Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) recipients fully enrolled as of December 31, 2021, will automatically continue to receive their current monthly benefit, up to $50.00, until March 1, 2022. This means that your discount will change after March 1, 2022, from up to $50.00 per month to up to $ 30.00 per month.

You can learn more about the program transition and steps you may need to take to stay enrolled after March 1st, by visiting fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit.
