Do you have trouble affording high-speed internet?  You may qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP).  This program helps lower-income families pay for high-speed internet. Eligible households receive a monthly discount of up to $30 per month and a one-time $100 discount toward a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.
