In the United States, only 30% of households that are eligible for internet assistance have signed up for the federal Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). In Loveland, the adoption rate is even lower at just 19%, according to Education Superhighway, a national non-profit with a mission to close the digital divide. That means 81% of people in Loveland who could benefit from internet payment assistance each month are not currently receiving it.
Ensuring that all Lovelanders have access to the highest quality connectivity to work, study, access health care, and play is the reason Pulse exists. We are proud to be able to help make this critical resource even more accessible for our most vulnerable community members.”
— BRIEANA REED-HARMEL, Fiber Manager
The federal ACP offers qualifying households $30 per month of assistance with their internet costs. Pulse has made the program even more helpful by adding an additional $14.95 per month of assistance – for a total of $44.95 – making the Starter package FREE for those who are eligible.
