Easily transfer your ACP benefit for FREE Internet or Mobile service

If you're already receiving an ACP benefit with another provider, you can easily transfer it to Optimum and save up to $30 a month on Optimum Internet or Mobile service. 

As of February 7th, the Federal Government stopped accepting new ACP applications and has not approved additional funding for the ACP. As a result, the program may end in the coming months, possibly as early as April 2024. While the outcome of the ACP is beyond our control, Optimum is fully committed to providing you with affordable internet options to keep you connected. We will keep you informed as information from the Federal Government becomes available.

If you don’t receive the ACP benefit, but still need affordable Internet or Mobile service, Optimum may be able to help.

Optimum is dedicated to keeping the communities we serve connected with affordable Internet and Mobile services. We have many options to meet your needs and budget. Speak with a customer representative today or shop online.
