What is the ACP or Affordable Connectivity Program?

The Affordable Connectivity Program is part of a larger $65B broadband Internet-related initiative that aims to make subsidized Internet access permanent for qualifying households. In addition, the program will increase and improve broadband infrastructure throughout the U.S., especially in rural areas.


The benefit will provide 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.

Armstrong is participating in this program and eligible households can receive up to a $30 credit on their internet bill.
