CentraCom Announces Extended Broadband Discount (EBD) for Current ACP Recipients

Fairview, Utah – June 5, 2024 – CentraCom, a leading provider of high-speed internet, phone, and TV services, previously announced the launch of its Extended Broadband Discount (EBD) program. This initiative is designed to bridge the gap for current Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) recipients after the FCC discontinued the program due to a lack of funding.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)

The ACP was a federal government program that provided a discount on monthly broadband internet service for qualifying low-income households. It played a vital role in closing the digital divide by making internet access more affordable for millions of Americans. Unfortunately, the FCC has been forced to discontinue the program due to congressional funding limitations.

CentraCom Steps Up with EBD

Understanding the critical role internet access plays in today’s world, CentraCom is committed to keeping its customers connected. The CentraCom EBD program extends a similar discount to current ACP recipients who are CentraCom subscribers. This will help ensure uninterrupted internet service and continued access to online resources for education, work, healthcare, and more. All ACP recipients, as of May 31, 2024, will receive the EBD service through January 31, 2025.

“At CentraCom, we are proud to be the community leader in broadband service, and we are dedicated to finding ways to give back to the communities we serve,” says Nate Palmer, Vice President of Marketing at CentraCom. 

“We believe internet access is more essential now more than ever. This EBD program reflects our commitment by ensuring the most vulnerable customers can stay connected and continue to thrive in a digital world,” added Brad Welch, COO at CentraCom.
