Affordable connectivity program

Discounts on internet service and devices

The new federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) helps households afford internet and devices they need for school, work, healthcare, and more.

The ACP offers these benefits for eligible households:

  • Up to a $30 per month discount on high-speed internet service through participating internet providers.
  • Up to a $75 per month discount on high-speed internet service for those on qualifying Tribal lands through participating internet providers.
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50).

In many cases, combining the Affordable Connectivity Program with affordable internet offers from participating providers throughout California can zero out monthly internet service cost.

You may qualify if your household is low-income or participates in certain assistance programs. Only one monthly service discount and one device discount allowed per household.

What is a household?
