The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that ACP will "freeze" on February 7, 2024 at 8:59 PM Pacific Time (California Time) after which no new ACP enrollments will be accepted at this time. The FCC says, if the customer is approved for ACP and enrolled with an ISP by the February 7 deadline, then they will receive full 90 days of ACP benefits, taking them through April 2024. However, the FCC also says that full or partial benefits could continue into May or longer, due to claims, refunding, or an extension of funding by Congress.
While no one knows exactly what Congress and the FCC will do, by signing up before February 7, you will: get up to a $30 per month benefit for up to 3 months; and make sure you are registered as a household in need of affordable Internet service for the future. You also may be given more consideration by your ISP for transition to another affordable Internet plan.
