*The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program created by Congress and implemented by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to assist eligible households to pay for internet services.
Eligibility is determined based on ACP rules. Eligible households must use the service to keep the subsidy and in the event the customer has (30) consecutive days without any internet usage, the customer may no longer be eligible to receive the subsidy. Eligible households may receive the program benefit from any participating provider and may transfer the benefit to another provider at any time. Offers do not include taxes and fees. Additional installation fees may also apply. Regular rates apply upon service suspension, cancellation, downgrades, or ACP conclusion. In the event that ACP is discontinued and the FCC announces an end date, you will be charged the undiscounted rate if you continue to receive service after the end date.
