Affordable Connectivity Program

Mercury Broadband was founded on the idea of bridging the rural broadband gap and providing high-speed internet access to rural America. High-speed Internet is no longer a luxury. Households need it for work, school, remote healthcare, and much more.

The Affordable Connectivity Program is an FCC program designed to help eligible households pay for broadband Internet service. For eligible households, the program provides a monthly discount of up to $30 (up to $75 for households on Tribal Lands) towards the amount charged for residential broadband Internet service, after any other discounts are applied. Discounts are applied via a credit on the subscriber’s monthly bill.

Mercury Broadband is proud to partner with the FCC to be a participating Internet Service Provider and help deliver as much of this financial benefit as possible. Our sales team can walk you through the application process.

Who Is Eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program?
