What’s happening to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced on January 11, 2024, that the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) will not accept any new applications or enrollments starting on February 8.
The FCC has informed service providers that the ACP will no longer have the funds to fully operate after April 2024 unless additional funding is approved by Congress.
As your Internet Service Provider, we want you to be aware of this potential end of the program and are committed to keeping you informed. We will provide updates when we receive more information from the FCC.
