Affordable Connectivity Program provides Philadelphians with free or low-cost broadband internet access

Posted by City of Philadelphia on March 21, 2023

The City of Philadelphia understands the importance of broadband access and has made digital equity a high priority. In 2020 it launched PHLConnectED to help school age children and families access free internet. The City also has a team of Digital Navigators available to meet one-on-one with residents to provide support with accessing free or low-cost internet and devices and digital skills-building resources.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal benefit provided by the Federal Communications Commission. The ACP helps ensure households can afford the broadband internet access they need for work, school, healthcare and more. The ACP can help thousands of Philadelphians get connected to free or low-cost broadband internet.
