How Does the ACP Protect Consumers?

FCC rules protect Affordable Connectivity

 

Program recipients by:

  • Empowering consumers to choose the service plan that best meets their needs (including a plan they may already be on);

  • Ensuring consumers have access to supported broadband services regardless of their credit status;

  • Prohibiting providers from excluding consumers with past due balances or prior debt from enrolling in the program;

  • Preventing consumers from being forced into more expensive or lower quality plans in order to receive the ACP;

  • Ensuring that consumers are not liable for early termination fees;

  • Reducing the potential for bill shock or other financial harms;

  • Allowing ACP recipients to switch providers or broadband service offerings; and

  • Providing a dedicated FCC process for ACP complaints.
