Hamilton is proud to participate in the FCC Affordable Connectivity Program.

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?


The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC benefit program that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.

What are the benefits?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB Program) to help low-income households pay for internet service and connected devices.

If your household is eligible, you can receive:

  • Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service

Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household.
