Families who struggle to afford at-home internet service can learn about a federal program that provides low-cost internet at Affordable Connectivity Program Awareness Day on Thursday, Nov. 16. The event takes place at the Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina Workforce Development Center (2701 University Parkway, Winston-Salem).
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is an FCC initiative that helps households who struggle to afford internet service. Eligible households can receive discounts on internet service and one-time discounts on desktops, laptops, and more.
People attending the event will be able to check their eligibility for the Affordable Connectivity Program and sign up. Representatives from AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and other internet providers will be on site to share information about their services.
Affordable Connectivity Program Awareness Day takes place from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., and 4-6 p.m. Light refreshments will be provided. To learn more, call 336-464-0520 x11205.
