What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

You may qualify for discounts on your broadband Internet service and the purchase of eligible computers and tablets.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) benefit program that helps ensure households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare, and more.  The benefit provides a discount of up to:

  • $30 per month toward broadband (internet) services for eligible households
  • $75 per month for eligible households on qualifying tribal lands
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers, if the household contributes more than $10 and less than $50 of the purchase price

The ACP is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
