The ACP replaces the temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program which will continue to provide the current monthly discount until March 1, 2022. Most customers will automatically transition to the ACP and others will be notified if they need to requalify. If you are enrolled in the EBB program, you can learn more about the changes here.
Additional eligibility and enrollment information is available by visiting www.fcc.gov/ACP, or by calling 877-384-2575.
Lifeline lowers the monthly cost of phone and internet with a $9.25 credit for eligible customers. You can use Lifeline for either phone or internet, but not both. FCC rules prohibit more than one Lifeline service per household.
