Navigating the End of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) with Consumer Cellular

At Consumer Cellular, we understand the importance of staying connected in today’s world. The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) played a vital role in making mobile internet accessible to households across the nation, ensuring that everyone had the opportunity to stay connected. With the program ceasing new applications on February 8th and slated to conclude its benefits in April, the need for alternative solutions is evident.

Consumer Cellular is ready to provide a smooth transition with our affordable plans as we move forward. Our goal has always been to offer dependable service that keeps you connected to what matters most without overextending your budget. For those seeking new options in the wake of the ACP’s phase-out, we’re here to help you find a plan that fits your lifestyle and keeps you connected.

The ACP Enrollment Freeze

As of February 7, 2024, the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has implemented an enrollment freeze, marking a significant shift for both current participants and those considering the program. This freeze means no new applications are being accepted, setting the stage for the program’s benefits to conclude in April. However, households enrolled by the freeze date can continue to enjoy the benefits through the program’s final month, provided they meet ongoing eligibility requirements. It’s important to note that households that find themselves de-enrolled for reasons such as not utilizing their ACP-supported service will not have the opportunity to reapply or re-enroll during this freeze period.

Impact on Enrolled Households

For those households currently benefiting from the ACP, staying informed is key. Important updates and notifications will be sent directly from your mobile internet provider and the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), the program’s administrator. These communications will offer essential insights into how the wind-down of the ACP might impact your service and billing. We encourage all enrolled households to proactively contact their service providers with any questions or concerns about the upcoming changes. This dialogue is crucial for understanding your options and ensuring a seamless transition as the program concludes.

Adapting to Changes with Consumer Cellular

As we approach the conclusion of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), Consumer Cellular is ready to welcome those in search of new, reliable mobile internet options. Understanding the essential role that connectivity plays in our daily lives, we’re here to offer a seamless solution that aligns with your financial and communication needs.
