How can my community take advantage of free internet?
First, households can confirm their eligibility for the new ACP benefit and get approved with the federal government’s National Verifier at www.acpbenefit.org. Then, they can call AT&T at (855) 220-5211, to verify ACP approval and set families up on a plan with the ACP benefit. All households that qualify and enroll with AT&T for ACP with their home internet will also qualify for the Access from AT&T program, including the newest speed tier.
Can the ACP benefit be applied on plans other than Access from AT&T?
