Telecom NewsBytes – 220110 – FCC Spending $14B on new Affordable Connectivity Program for Internet Discounts

The Federal Communications Commission has officially replaced the Emergency Broadband Benefit with the Affordable Connectivity Program, launching a new subsidy program that is set to dish out more than $14 billion in support for broadband users.

 The EBB was launched in May 2021 and offered eligible households up to $50 per month off their broadband bill or $75 per month if the household was on Tribal land.

Under the ACP, the maximum household benefit will be reduced to $30 per month for most homes, though the benefit for those on Tribal lands will remain the same. FOR MORE DETAILS: GOTO
