FCC Seeks Comment on Affordable Connectivity Program

On November 18, 2021, the FCC released a public notice seeking comment on the implementation of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and a timeline for its rapid implementation. The ACP modifies and extends the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB) to a longer-term broadband affordability program.

The FCC requests that stakeholders include in their comments on how the changes to program eligibility and benefit amount impact the providers, consumer groups, governmental agencies, and others as they prepare to support outreach for and enrollment in the ACP. The Commission further urged commenters to suggest ways in which the Commission could facilitate these program changes to minimize any potentially disruptive impacts on low-income consumers.

Comments are due: December 8, 2021 and Reply Comments are Due: December 28, 2021
