It's our priority to ensure that more people in Hawaii have access to reliable services -- that's why we offer financial assistance programs to support those in need. If you or someone you know could benefit from discounted internet or phone service, learn more about the special programs offered below and how to apply: ACP or Internet Kokua for Internet or Lifeline for Home Phone service.

Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) 

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal government program that will provide a discount of up to $30 per month for broadband services for eligible consumers. Consumers who live on qualifying Tribal lands (e.g. Hawaiian Homelands) can receive enhanced support of up to $75 per month toward broadband services.
