About the Affordable Connectivity Program
If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that access to high-speed internet is not a luxury; it’s a necessity. Unfortunately, the high-speed internet too many Oklahomans need is not available where they live, and this holds them back.

What is the benefit?
Under the Affordable Connectivity Program, Oklahomans may be eligible for a discount on their high-speed internet service of up to:

  • $75/month discount for high-speed internet services for households on tribal land (this encompasses most Oklahoma residences, and tribal affiliation is not required for eligibility - see eligibility map HERE.)
  • $30/month discount for high-speed internet services for non-tribal Oklahoma residences.
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased through a participating provider.

Who qualifies for the benefit?
Here are the ways your household can qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program:

  • Based on your household income
  • If you or your child or dependent participate in certain government assistance programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC, or other programs
  • If you or your child or dependent already receives a Lifeline benefit

How to apply:
There are several ways you can apply for the Affordable Connectivity Program.

  • Online: Login or create a new account to complete the ACP application online.
  • Contact your internet company: ask your internet company if they participate in the ACP, or use this online tool to find a participating company near you. Participating companies can help you apply through their company’s application process.
