unWired joins the Affordable Connectivity Program
unWired announced today its participation in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program. The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward Internet service for eligible households.
A household is eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program if a member of the household meets at least one of the criteria below:
- • Your income is 200% or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines
- • Participates in SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, Section 8 vouchers or other government assistance programs
- • Receives free or reduced-price school lunch
- • See the full list of qualifications here
Eligible households can enroll by going to affordableconnectivity.gov. Once enrolled, both new and existing unWired customers can save $30 per month. Contact our Customer Service team and provide your Application ID to apply the ACP discount to your account.
“At unWired, we are committed to bridging the digital divide in underserved communities across Central and Northern California,” said Peter Sorensen, CEO of unWired Broadband. “We are proud to be a part of the Affordable Connectivity Program and look forward to continuing to serve our customers with the highest quality of service and support.”
The Affordable Connectivity Program is a Federal Government benefit program operated by the Federal Communications Commission and, if the Program ends, or when a household is no longer eligible, subscribers will be subject to regular unWired rates, terms and conditions. The Affordable Connectivity Program discount is non-transferable and limited to one monthly Internet discount and a one-time connected device discount per household.
