Affordable Internet doesn’t end with ACP

Unfortunately, the Federal Government stopped accepting new Affordable Connectivity Program applications in February 2024. Additionally, Congress has not approved additional funding for the ACP, so as a result, the program ended in May 2024.

Optimum customers enrolled in ACP received the full benefit on their April 2024 bill. To deplete the remaining funds, the FCC allowed providers, including Optimum, to offer a partial benefit for the month of May.

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. Click the link below to find a plan that's right for you.
