Back to school time can be rough on anyone’s household budget! Between school supplies, new clothes and shoes, and all the after-school snacks, any mom is looking for ways to stretch their budget and save a few dollars.

Our partners at Comcast are ready to help families all across New Mexico from breaking their budget by participating in the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program. This program allows eligible households to save up to $30 per month off their internet bill (and up to $75 off per month if your household is on tribal land).

Is My Family Eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program?

You are eligible for the Affordable Connectivity Program discounts if your entire household income is at or below twice the federal poverty level (for example, $55,500/year for a family of four, $27,180/year for an individual). Another way to qualify is if your family participates in certain federal assistance programs such as Lifeline, SNAP/EBT, Medicaid, or free and reduced-price school lunch.

Extra Perks

Customers participating in the Affordable Connectivity Program can apply their discount to any tier of Xfinity Internet service. If you sign up for Internet Essentials Plus, which includes 100 Mbps download speeds, a cable modem and a WiFi router, your service will be free after the government’s ACP credit is applied. Additionally, Xfinity Internet customers participating in ACP now can add mobile service through Xfinity Mobile.
