CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM

The Affordable Connectivity Program is a government funded program by the FCC to help offset the cost of broadband services for eligible households during COVID-19.

The program was originally referred to as the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit but has changed to the Affordable Connectivity Program and will provide a discount of up to $30 (previously $50) per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for eligible households on Tribal lands.

In 2006 when Sacred Wind started, only 26% of the households in our territory had access to emergency 911 telephone service and no high-speed internet. Today in 2021, all of Sacred Wind’s customers have access to emergency 911 and telephone service while at least 85% have access to some of the highest internet speeds found on tribal lands in the United States.
