The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) to help low-income households pay for internet service.

If your household is eligible, you can receive: Up to a $30/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals.

Depending on location and service eligibility, the ACP can be used towards our monthly Internet packages. New customer residential speed options and pricing are below:

Here are the ways your household can qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP):

Only one monthly service discount is allowed per household. Program rules acknowledge there may be more than one eligible household residing at the same address. Any member of your household can make your household eligible. For example, if your child or dependent participates in the Free and Reduced-Price School Lunch Program, your household qualifies for ACP.

The Affordable Connectivity Program benefit is separate from any existing Lifeline benefits and is subject to verification of the customer using the discounted broadband service.

If you are unsure whether you may qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) or would like more information, you can visit or contact our office at 940-759-2251.

After you submit the National Verifier online application, you should receive immediate approval confirmation. If eligibility is not automatically proven, the National Verifier will request additional documentation from you and provide information on how to submit these documents for review.
