AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM
Financial support when you need it most!
We believe it’s more important than ever that families in need have access to affordable internet so they can stay connected to family, friends, work, and school.
The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that 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 and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. 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. (La Harpe Telephone does not participate in the connectivity device reimbursement.)
The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.
