If you are a Maryland resident and are looking for low cost way to stay connected, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is the perfect solution. This program offers free cell phone service and unlimited data to residents who meet certain eligibility requirements.
The ACP program is available to low-income Maryland residents participating in government assistance programs or through your household income level.
In this blog post, we will discuss how to apply for the ACP and what benefits you can expect if you are approved.
What is the Affordable Connectivity Program?
As the COVID-19 epidemic caused widespread economic hardship, millions of Americans lacked access to internet services. To provide temporary assistance, the government created the Emergency Broadband Benefit program and funded it through January 1st 2022.
Replacing this program is now a new initiative - The Affordable Connectivity Program – which seeks to bring high speed internet in an economical way for all citizens regardless of their financial situation!
