“New polling shows that the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) continues to be overwhelmingly popular among Republican, Democratic, and Independent voters alike. Among Independents, the margin of support for ACP has jumped from 40% to 56% over the last year. Created in 2021 as part of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and administered by the Federal Communications Commission, the ACP provides qualifying households with up to $30 off their monthly home internet bills and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying tribal lands. Coupled with affordable offers for high-speed internet plans for $30 per month or less, qualifying Americans are paying $0 for broadband access. What’s more, eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute more than $10 and less than $50 toward the purchase price. Eligibility is defined as households at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or if a member of the household meets specific criteria.”
