Possible Changes to the Affordable Connectivity Program
The FCC has recently provided notice that without additional funding, the funds for this program are estimated to run out in April 2024. Find your representative today and urge them to extend this important program.
Alternatively, you may be eligible for Lifeline, a federal program that lowers the monthly cost of phone or internet service. See if you’re eligible
Important ACP Information
We have proudly supported the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) since 2021, which allows us to offer free or discounted internet service to qualifying customers.
What does this mean for you?
If no additional funding is provided to the program, the ACP discount will no longer be available. If you are currently enrolled in ACP and receiving the discount, that discount will no longer be applied after April 2024.
What are my options if the federal funds run out?
We understand that ACP ending can be frustrating. We will send more communication as we continue to receive information from the FCC and will provide you with viable options for your ALLO service before the discount ends.
What do I need to do now?
You do not need to take any action at this time. We wanted to let our customers know of the possible ending of the program. Be on the lookout for future notices from ALLO.
We understand how important this program is to many people. We encourage you to reach out to your state representative to express the need for the continuation and extension of this program.
Although the future of the Affordable Connectivity Program is uncertain, you may be eligible for Lifeline. Eligible consumers can get up to $9.25 off the cost of internet. Alternately, eligible consumers may get up to $12.95 off the cost of phone or phone and internet bundles.
