Mediacom program designed to bring the Internet to low-income homes

Mediacom Communications has announced its participation in the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a new program designed to help more Americans reduce the monthly cost of home Internet service.

The ACP is administered by the Federal Communications Commission. Eligible households can receive a credit of up to $30 on their monthly Internet service bill. Eligibility is defined by the FCC and targets households with incomes below 200% of federal poverty guidelines or participating in government programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, WIC and Lifeline.

To maximize the benefits of ACP, Mediacom has launched a new Internet service called Connect2Compete-Plus (C2C+) with a price of $30 per month, including a modem and unlimited data for eligible households. The new C2C+ level offers Internet download speeds of up to 50 Mbps and is one of many speed options available to customers participating in CPA.

The ACP benefit is available to new and existing Mediacom customers who qualify. Households interested in participating in the CPA must confirm their eligibility on the Affordable Connectivity website and can then register for the program.
