The ACP Has Ended for Now

Due to a lack of additional funding from Congress, the Affordable Connectivity Program, has ended for now. Effective June 1, 2024, households will no longer receive an ACP discount.

Enrolled households should carefully review written notices from their internet company and from the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), the ACP administrator. Also, ask your internet company about how the end of the ACP will impact your internet service and bill.

For updates about the end of ACP, refer to fcc.gov/ACP and AffordableConnectivity.gov

If you are having issues with your provider involving the Affordable Connectivity Program, you may want to file an informal consumer complaint with us. If your issue is a billing and service issue, we will serve your complaint on your provider. Your provider has 30 days to send you a response to your complaint. We encourage you to contact your provider to attempt to resolve your issue prior to filing a complaint.

You can also submit an informal complaint over the phone by calling 888-CALL-FCC (888-225-5322)
