Ayersville Communications & The FCC Affordable Connectivity Program
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.
Ayersville Communications fully supports the Federal Communication Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) program.
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.
The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount per household. To review important facts, terms, conditions, and determine if you qualify please visit https://www.fcc.gov/acp and review the ACP FAQ page.
