Affordable Connectivity Program

What is the ACP?

The Affordable Connectivity Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that helps ensure households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.

The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households. 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.

Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household.

Loretto Telecom is a participating internet service provider, but is not a provider of laptops, desktops, or tablets.
