Affordable Connectivity Program
Below is information regarding the ACP Program (EDD) that was introduced by the Government in recent months. Please let me know if you have any questions! Attached is an email the customer will receive at the point of sale upon requesting ACP.
Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program. A $14 billion program, which will replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. This article provides eligibility information, business rules, scope of support, account identification, and customer handling instructions.
ACP customers who are requesting a change to their internet speed or customers adding Internet must be offered ACP following a mandatory legal disclosure.
The ACP program will provide a recurring credit of up to $30 per month ($75 in Tribal Lands), to be applied directly to eligible customers' accounts, off the rate for eligible Internet Service until funding is depleted.
Customers must meet income qualifications and Opt-In to the ACP program.
Income qualifications require location flagging or validation at the National Verifier located at http://ACPBenefit.org
