Affordable Connectivity Program
What is it?
The Affordable Connectivity Act is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program with the purpose to help low income households afford broadband service.
Low-income consumers who need help paying for voice, broadband or wireless service, may be eligible to participate in the Lifeline program.
Lifeline is a non-transferable, federal benefit that makes monthly voice or broadband service more affordable. Eligible households may apply the monthly Lifeline discount to either landline voice or landline broadband service.
You may be eligible to receive Lifeline if you, or a dependent, receive any of the following:
