Affordable Connectivity Program

What is the FCC Affordable Connectivity Program?

From providing opportunities to work from home, to receiving telehealth online from healthcare professionals, to remote learning during public health crises or emergencies, being connected to high-speed, reliable broadband internet isn’t a luxury, or even a mere convenience.
