The Middlesex Broadband Authority recognizes the importance of digital equity and making sure everyone has affordable access to high speed internet. To that end, we ask that everyone respond to the survey linked below. If you will take a few minutes to share your experience, it will help direct funding where it's most needed.
Affordable Connectivity Program
The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a U.S. government program that helps many low income households pay for broadband service and internet connected devices.
If your household is eligible, you could receive:
Up to a $30/month discount on your internet service
Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
A low cost service plan that may be fully covered through the ACP

Line Extension Customer Assistance Program (LECAP)
The Line Extension Customer Assistance Program (LECAP) is designed to support the extension of existing broadband networks to low-to-moderate-income residents.
For a subset of Virginians, broadband connections are not attainable because their home exceeds an internet service provider’s standard connection drop length from a roadway or easement containing telecommunications infrastructure. The cost incurred by home owners to extend broadband infrastructure to these locations, referred to as special construction costs, range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the distance and cost to connect the location.
