Let’s face it, times are tough for some of us. The cost of living has greatly jumped in the last few years. This has prompted many of us to cut costs wherever we can by switching to cheaper prepaid phone plans, ad-based streaming services, going out to eat less, and the list goes on. There might be another potential discount you’re unaware of. If you’re a low-income US household, you may be able to save on your monthly internet bill through the Affordable Connectivity Program.

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program was originally introduced in response to the pandemic and the need for internet access for students and workers stuck at home. It gives a $30 discount on qualifying ISP or phone service to those that qualify under its low-income guidelines. Those who live on qualifying tribal land will receive a bigger $ 75-a-month discount. Additionally, all ACP qualifiers will get a device discount of up to $100 that can be applied towards a tablet, laptop, or another online-capable device.
