Affordable Connectivity Program

Announcement: The FCC recently issued an Order announcing the potential wind-down of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) due to a lack of additional funding from Congress. Currently, funding for the program is anticipated to run through April 2024. However, Congress is now working to extend funding for this program.  Should federal funding be extended, Comporium will communicate the decision and there should be no action required for subscribers. If federal funding is not extended, Comporium will no longer be able to offer the current ACP discount and your monthly rates will be adjusted. As we learn more about the future of ACP funding or efforts to extend it, we will keep you informed. Additionally, Comporium will no longer accept new enrollees into the program as of February 7, 2024.

To better serve the needs of our communities, Comporium is offering a new “Connected” Internet program that is free to qualifying households.

About the Affordable Connectivity Program

The Affordable Connectivity Program will provide a discount of up to $30 per month towards any broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands. The Affordable Connectivity Program is limited to one monthly service discount per household.
