What Is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)  

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a monthly discount on internet services and a one-time device discount for qualifying low-income households.

If a household is eligible, they can receive:

  • Up to a $30/month discount on internet service and associated equipment rentals (such as modems, routers, hotspot devices and antennas)

  • 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)

  • Potential users must sign up for the program, and then register for internet service at a provider (for example, AT&T), and give the provider their account number assigned by the government. 
  • Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household.
