GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
The government offers some free or low-cost internet programs: Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The government's main internet program is Lifeline, which can save you around $9 to $29 monthly. The Affordable Connectivity Program is designed to make broadband internet access more affordable, which can save you $30 to $75 monthly.
Lifeline and ACP benefits can be combined and applied to the same internet plan or applied to different internet plans that start at $9.95/month for 100 MBPS download speeds. Additionally, Lifeline subscribers can choose to take ACP benefits from another service provider. Click on each internet program's picture or button below to learn more!
