How to get the internet discount in the USA for 2022

What is the Internet Discount Program

The Internet discount program (Affordable Connectivity Program or ACP for its acronym in English) is a federal contribution that allows the most vulnerable households in the United States to finance part of their internet account, provided they meet the requirements.

The initiative of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC, for its acronym in English) emerged in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic as an Emergency Broadband Benefit for the Internet (Emergency Broadband Benefit or EBB for its acronym in English), to go help of families who did not have enough resources to finance broadband internet for work, school and health services.

The EBB ended on December 31, 2021 and has since been replaced by the ACP program, which is now a long-term and permanent policy in support of the most vulnerable families in the United States. For 2022, it contemplates resources for $14,000 million dollars.
