Community Connect with

Affordable Connectivity Program

Through the Community Connect program, Home Telecom is ensuring our community members are always connected to the high speed internet they need to thrive. Home Telecom is pleased to participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) as a part of our Community Connect program. The ACP is a federal government program that provides eligible households with a discount on internet service. The ACP will provide a discount of up to $30 on internet bills for households that meet income eligibility requirements. It’s important to note, Home Telecom does not determine a household’s eligibility. The member will receive approval for the program from the USAC’s National Verifier and the member will provide Home Telecom with an enrollment code for verification.
