Statement on Administration’s Call for Additional ACP Funding

Today, the Administration requested additional funds to strengthen the Affordable Connectivity Program by extending free and discounted high-speed internet for eligible households through December 2024.

The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, president and CEO, USTelecom:

“The Affordable Connectivity Program is a critical part of reaching our shared goal of universal connectivity. We applaud the Administration’s request for additional funding for the ACP. The program has already enabled more than 21 million low-income households to participate in our digital economy. We urge Congress to find a long-term solution to sustain this vital program.”
