Twin Lakes has been approved by the FCC as a provider for the Affordable Connectivity Program to help lower the cost of broadband service.
About the Affordable Connectivity Program
The Affordable Connectivity Program is a federal government benefit program operated by the FCC that helps ensure that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more. The benefit provides a discount of up to $30 per month toward internet service for eligible households. The Affordable Connectivity Program is non-transferable and limited to one monthly service discount per household. If the program ends, or when a household is no longer eligible, subscribers will be subject to Twin Lakes’ standard internet rates and terms.
