Astound Low-Income ACP Replacement Service Costs $9.95 a Month

While the Federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program has ended as of May 31, 2024, many ACP participating internet service providers are now finding ways to continue their low-income plans.

Astound is the latest award-winning service provider to introduce its low-income plans. Customers can get service for as low as $9.95 per month for 50 Mbps.

If the customer can afford they can pay $19.95 per month and get internet speed of up to 150 Mbps.

Also, the customer will get a one-year free line of Astound Unlimited Mobile, and the internet services will be free for the first 3 months.

However, to qualify for these plans, customers must meet the eligibility criteria set by Astound.

To be eligible for the Astound low-income plan, customers must take part in government assistance programs such as the National School Lunch Program, Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI, TANF, or any other government assistance program for low-income families.

Customers only have to participate in the government’s low-income assistance program, as there are no contracts, credit checks, or installation fees.

Here are the complete highlights.

  • 50 Mbps Internet for $9.95/month
  • 150 Mbps Internet for $19.95/month
  • Modem & WiFi Included
  • No Contracts | No Credit Check | No Installation Fees
  • 3 Months Free for new customers
  • One line of Astound Unlimited Mobile is free for 12 months

The company said that they have been working with local governments, school districts, and nonprofits to help low-income families bridge the digital gap.

Astound is already known for charitable work. Recently, it partnered with Habitat for Humanity to help low-income families get safe and affordable housing.

With new low-income plans, Astound is supposed to bridge the digital gap by providing affordable internet plans.

Earlier, the ACP programs used to offer low-income people a monthly discount of up to $30 and a one-time ACP discount of $100 to buy tablets, laptops, or desktop computers.

Jim Holanda, Astound CEO, said in a prepared statement, “Astound Broadband developed Internet First so all residents can have access to affordable, reliable, fast internet to meet their daily needs,”.

He added, “Internet First is a low-cost, high-quality Internet program that provides peace of mind and keeps customers connected to everything that matters to them.”

Not just Astound, other service providers such as TDS connect, Verizon, T-Mobile, and others have also introduced their ACP replacement programs.
