The Biden Administration Works to Expand Free Internet
The Biden administration secured commitments from 20 internet providers to increase speeds or cut prices so that tens of millions of eligible U.S. households can receive free high-speed internet, the White House announced on Monday.
The commitments build on the affordable connectivity program (ACP), which was created through the bipartisan infrastructure law and provides eligible families with $30 a month off their internet bills.
The new commitments announced on Monday mean internet providers will increase speeds or cut prices to ensure that all ACP-eligible households receive high-speed, high-quality internet plans for no more than $30 per month.
