The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) ​is winding down

The ​Federal Communications Commission (FCC) benefit program that is helping qualified households to afford a broadband plan is projected to run only through April 2024, due to a lack of additional funding from Congress.

Households currently enrolled will continue to receive their ACP​ benefit through the end of the program.​​

Discount Details

Consumers that are enrolled in the ACP will continue to receive their benefit on their internet service through April 2024. This date is an estimate and may change.

The ACP provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. Available for households is also a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers after the household contribution up to $50 toward the purchase price.

The ACP is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household. ​A household can receive both the ACP benefit and the Lifeline benefit.

The Lifeline Program is not ending, and households enrolled in the Lifeline program will not lose their Lifeline Discount.

Wisconsin Provider

Participation in the ACP benefit program by internet service providers was voluntary by the company. A list of approved, participating providers, service type, and whether or not they were offering devices, was available by visiting USAC Companies Near Me​.

Starting late January 2024, and during the ACP wind-down period, households that are currently receiving​ a​monthly ACP benefit should start to receive ​notices from their internet company (via email or via mail) with information about the end of the ACP benefit. The notices will tell households that:

  1. ​The ACP is ending.
  2. The impact on their bill.
  3. The date of the last bill they will receive that includes the ACP benefit, and
  4. That the customer may change their service, or close service after the end of the ACP.​

​ACP households may also switch their internet plans without penalty.

Households can contact their internet company for questions about how the end of the ACP will affect their monthly bill and to ask about available options.
