Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)
Blue Stream Fiber is proud to participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP is a federal government program that helps eligible households pay for home internet service. If your household qualifies for the ACP benefit, you can receive up to a $30/month discount on your internet service.
A household may qualify for ACP benefits based on income, participation in certain assistance programs (such as SNAP, Medicaid, Federal Public Housing Assistance, SSI, or Lifeline), or participation in the National School Lunch Program or the School Breakfast Program.
For more details on eligible households, please visit the official ACP website.

To apply for the ACP benefit, simply follow these steps below:

Note that you must complete the steps above & reside in a Blue Stream Fiber serviceable area or community to participate in the ACP benefit.
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a government program that reduces the household’s broadband internet access service bill. According to the FCC, a household is a group of people who live together and share income and expenses (even if they are not related to each other). For more information on what qualifies as a household, visit the ACP Benefit website. Households may obtain ACP-supported broadband service from any participating provider of its choosing and may apply the ACP benefit to any broadband service offering of the participating provider at the same terms available to households that are not eligible for ACP-supported service. The provider may disconnect the household’s ACP-supported service after 90 consecutive days of non-payment. The household will be subject to the provider’s undiscounted rates and general terms and conditions if the program ends, if the consumer transfers their benefit to another provider but continues to receive service from the current provider, or upon de-enrollment from the Affordable Connectivity Program. The household may file a complaint against its provider via the Commission’s Consumer Complaint Center by going to consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/ or calling 888-CALL-FCC (888-225-5322).
