Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) was launched by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ensure that all American households can afford high-speed internet access (broadband) for education, work, and access to a myriad of online services.

Spectrum joined the league of ACP internet providers that agreed to partner with the FCC for the wide-scale implementation of the ACP program. The Spectrum Affordable Connectivity Program is available to all households who qualify for the monthly $30 credit towards their broadband connections.

Spectrum Low Income Internet Program

The Spectrum Affordable Connectivity Program allows low-income households to subscribe to Spectrum’s 100 Mbps internet plan for free. Once the Spectrum ACP application is approved, the applicant is entitled to a $30/mo credit from the US government, which covers the entire monthly bill for the 100 Mbps Spectrum internet plan. As a result, low-income households can get reliable access to a high-speed internet plan for free!

Existing customers can also benefit from the $30/mo Spectrum ACP credit by applying it to their current Spectrum Internet plan. For instance, if an individual subscribes to Spectrum’s 300 Mbps package for $49.99 per month, he only needs to pay $19.99/mo, and the government will bear the remaining $30 due to his participation in the Spectrum Affordable Connectivity Program.

Spectrum ACP customers are also entitled to the perks available to regular Spectrum Internet customers. These include access to Spectrum WiFi Hotspots, a free internet modem, Advanced WiFi, and a self-installation option. The monthly Spectrum ACP discount can be used more efficiently by subscribing to the three-in-one Spectrum One Bundle.
