Save up to $30/mo. on your internet plan
Viasat is participating in the Federal Communication Commission's (FCCs) Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a federal government benefit program designed to help keep qualifying households connected.
Click on the link below to see if you or someone in your household may qualify for the ACP discount.
Use the link below to apply and submit the required documents online or via mail.
Once approved for the ACP and you have your application ID, give us a call and we'll help you apply the discount to your plan.
ACP is a new federal program that offers payment assistance on internet services to keep qualifying customers connected for learning, healthcare, work, and more. If you're eligible:
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) ended on 12/31/21 and was replaced with the Affordable Connectivity Program. Those households fully enrolled in the EBB program as of 12/31/21 continued to receive their EBB monthly benefits until 3/1/22.
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is up to a $30/mo. discount that applies to the cost of internet service if your household qualifies. If you reside on qualifying Tribal lands, you may be eligible for up to a $75/mo. discount.
Congress intended for the ACP to replace the EBB as a longer-term program. It will continue for so long as the government provides funding for the ACP. If the program ends, customers will be subject to Viasat's regular rates, terms, and conditions.
Once the ACP program ends or you are no longer eligible, if you choose to continue with your current internet service plan, you will be subject to Viasat's regular rates, terms, and conditions.
Eligible households that live on qualifying Tribal lands may receive a discount of up to $75/mo. off Viasat Internet service.
To ensure that your Application ID is still valid and that it will be accepted when Viasat enters it in the government's NLAD ACP database, here is what you need to know:
In order to qualify for the ACP benefit, your household's income must be at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, or a member of your household must meet at least one of the following criteria:
The benefit is limited to one per household and can only be applied to one provider at a time. However, you may choose to transfer your benefit to another participating provider at any time.
The ACP benefit is nontransferable between other persons or households. The ACP benefit is limited to one monthly benefit per household.
You may be de-enrolled from the ACP through Viasat for several reasons, including the following:
The Application ID obtained through the National Verifier expires after 90 days. Customers will need to reapply on the ACP website to get a new Application ID if they request to have their provider apply the ACP discount more than 90 days after first obtaining the Application ID.
Yes, you can apply the ACP to the cost or your current Viasat Internet service.
Your ACP discount will appear in the same location as your standard Internet Plan charges as "ACP Discount" or "ACP Tribal Land Discount", and it will reduce the total due by up to $30 per month, or up to $75 per month for those residing on eligible Tribal lands.
You could see the ACP discount on the first bill you receive following confirmation of your enrollment in the ACP. However, depending on when you enroll, and the date of your bill cycle, the discount may not appear until your second bill after enrollment.
Viasat service and participation in the ACP program is only available in select areas and to eligible households. At the conclusion of the ACP program or when a household is no longer eligible, customers will be subject to Viasat's regular rates, terms, and conditions.
One-time standard installation fee may be charged at the time of sale. Monthly service fee, equipment lease fee and taxes apply. Offer may be changed or withdrawn at any time. If you receive service through the ACP, you may discontinue service or switch to another service plan at any time without penalty, and you may transfer your benefit to another participating provider up to one time per month.
