Bridging the Digital Divide: Blue Mountain’s Commitment to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

In today’s world, the internet is not just a luxury; it’s a necessity. Blue Mountain Networks is a local telecommunications provider and we understand the importance of staying connected. That’s why we have been participating in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a U.S. government initiative designed to help low-income households access high-speed internet at an affordable cost. However, recently the federal government has issued a statement regarding their intention to terminate this program.

What is the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)?

The Affordable Connectivity Program is a federal initiative aimed at ensuring that every American household has access to high-speed internet. Recognizing that internet access is crucial for jobs, healthcare services, and education, the ACP provides eligible households with a discount on broadband service and connected devices.

How Blue Mountain Networks is Making a Difference:

As a local community-focused internet service provider, Blue Mountain Networks is committed to supporting our neighbors and local families. By participating in the ACP, we are taking a step further in our mission to eliminate the digital divide in our community. We believe everyone deserves access to high-quality internet, regardless of their economic situation.

Who is Eligible?

Eligibility for the ACP is based on household income or participation in certain government assistance programs like SNAP, Medicaid, or Lifeline. A household is eligible if its income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty guidelines or if a member of the household meets certain criteria.
