The ACP Is No Longer Accepting Applications

The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that is currently helping to ensure that more than 22+ million households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more. 

The Affordable Connectivity Program stopped accepting new applications and enrollments on February 8th. Barring additional funding from Congress, April is expected to be the last month enrolled households will receive the full benefit. Consumers had to be approved and enrolled with a service provider by 11:59 p.m. ET on February 7th to receive the ACP benefit.

ACP enrolled households are strongly encouraged to carefully review written notices from their internet company and from the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), the ACP administrator, about the ACP wind-down.

Households are also encouraged to consult their internet company to learn more about how the end of the ACP will impact their internet service and bill.

Consumer Alert: Deep-Fake Audio, Video Links


Scammers are now using Artificial Intelligence, commonly know as AI, to make it sound like celebrities, elected officials, or even your own friends and family are calling. 

Also known as voice cloning, these technologies emulate recognizable voices for robocalls to consumers and are often used in imposter scams that spread misinformation, endorse products, or steal money and personal information. 

Scammers may try to fool an unsuspecting grandparent that a grandchild is in trouble and needs immediate financial assistance or solicit donations to a fake charity endorsed by what sounds like a trusted celebrity. Click to learn more.
