Could your connections be more affordable?
Tuesday, April 12, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano
Did you know that there is a program that helps households pay for broadband service and internet-connected devices? The Affordable Connectivity Program could help temper the cost of living for households that make below 200 percent of the federal poverty line or receive other government benefits. Eligible households can get up to $30 per month off of internet service, among other things. The program comes out of the Emergency Broadband Benefit, and most households that were enrolled in that program will be transferred to the new program automatically. You can find more information on the program and eligibility online.
