Sparklight offers free internet through FCC program

Posted

As part of its ongoing commitment to bridge the digital divide and ensure affordable internet access to the communities it serves, Sparklight will offer free internet service for qualifying households through the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Eligible households can take advantage of fast and reliable internet at no cost.

Available to individuals who qualify for ACP, Sparklight customers can sign up for internet service that includes 100 Mbps download speed, unlimited data and a modem, free after the government’s ACP credit is applied. All Sparklight internet plans up to 1 Gig qualify for ACP, so those in need of a higher level of service can select the speed best suited for their needs and the $30/month ACP benefit will be applied to the selected tier of broadband service.

“Our participation in the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program reflects our deep commitment to addressing digital equity across our footprint and ensuring families stay connected to reliable internet service at an affordable cost,” said Matthew Armstrong, Sparklight Senior Vice President of Residential Services. “Through this program, we can reach low-income households across our footprint and ensure cost is not a barrier to reliable connectivity.”

New and existing Sparklight customers can visit www.sparklight.com/acp for more information, to determine eligibility and sign up.
