Step 1. Fill Out Form
The goal of this program is to ensure that internet service is affordable for everyone. However, you must use the service to keep the subsidy. If you reach 30 days without any internet usage, you may no longer be eligible to receive the subsidy.
The ACP is funded by Congress. In the event it is discontinued, the FCC will announce its end date. In that case, at the end of the program, you will be charged the undiscounted rate if you continue to receive the service, which will be subject to our general terms and conditions. You may transfer this ACP subsidy to another provider at any time.
The FCC has made available a dedicated complaint process to address subscriber issues concerning ACP enrollment or participating provider provisioning of ACP- supported services. The FCC's Consumer Complaint Center for ACP can be found at https://consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us or by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC (888-225-5322).
