Broadband Affordable Connectivity Program

Too many families can't afford high-speed internet service. Monthly internet bills, installation fees, and computer costs add up. When high-speed internet is available, it's not always accessible. 

The Affordable Connectivity Program tackles this problem. It helps low-income families pay for internet service. Families can get up to $30 per month. And they can get $100 to help pay for a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer. 

Americans can qualify for free high-speed internet through this program.
