T-Mobile Further Breaks Down Barriers to High-Speed Internet by Expanding Participation in Federal Affordable Connectivity Program

08 de febrero de 2023

BELLEVUE, Wash.— February 8, 2023 — To ensure financially challenged households stay connected to their world, T-Mobile — through Assurance Wireless, the Un-carrier’s Lifeline Assistance brand — expands its participation in the federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to seven additional states bringing the total number where T-Mobile offers ACP to 48 states and the District of Columbia. With ACP, eligible households can get what they need to stay connected.

Now, qualified households in Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming may be eligible for a $30 monthly discount (up to $75 on tribal lands) toward internet service on certain plans. With that ACP benefit at Assurance Wireless, you can receive:

  • Monthly data, texting, calling and mobile hotspot data on Assurance Wireless’ plans … all on the power of T-Mobile's nationwide network.
  • A free Android smartphone for new customers (model based on availability)
  • Scam Shield with free scam protection tools

The ACP Helps More Americans

In many areas, consumers have little to no choice for broadband or access to high-speed internet at all.  With ACP, more Americans will have the opportunity to experience the power of internet. Households may be eligible to receive the ACP benefit if they participate in programs like SNAP, WIC or Medicaid, or have an income up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

T-Mobile Helps Bridge the Digital Divide

Taking part in ACP — through through both Assurance Wireless and Metro by T-Mobile — is just one way that T-Mobile demonstrates its commitment to bringing wireless access to everyone. Connect by T-Mobile, the Un-carrier’s lowest priced plan ever, came from the increased capacity and resources of T-Mobile and Sprint to help more people get and stay connected at just $15/month for unlimited talk and text, plus up to 2.5GB of high-speed data with 5G access included on capable devices and an annual upgrade of 500MB/year over the next four years — both at no extra cost. T-Mobile launched Connect by T-Mobile at the start of the pandemic and followed with Project 10Million, a $10.7 billion investment by T-Mobile to help close the Homework Gap, the Un-carrier offers free internet service and free mobile hotspots to under-connected households with eligible school-aged children, aiming to reach up to 10 million eligible households over five years.
