Connecting to the Internet is easier than it has ever been!
You may have heard of a new program called the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). This program allows qualified applicants to receive a brand new tablet (valued at $200) and free Internet for the next 5 years!
If you qualify for the ACP program, you'll receive the tablet and Internet at no cost to you. You will never receive a bill with this program.
