From the FCC: Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a new long-term, $14 billion program, which will replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. This investment in broadband affordability will help ensure we can afford the connections we need for work, school, health care and more for a long time.
The new Affordable Connectivity Program will provide up to a $30 discount each calendar month (and up to $75 on Tribal Lands) on any service offering per qualified household, as well as continue the one-time device subsidy on an eligible device per qualified household. The service offering can be switched at any time & ACP discount applied once each calendar month.
The ACP became effective on 12/31/21. However, Households enrolled in the EBB Program as of 12/31/21 will continue to receive their current monthly benefit until 3/1/22. These households will be notified if they are required to take any steps to retain benefits after 3/1/22. Households enrolled in the EBB Program will transition to the ACP after 3/1/22, subject to their eligibility, and Gen Mobile will continue to provide the same phone plans or mobile hotspot and tablet plans, as applicable.
