    We will describe below current efforts using programs like the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to get more people connected. Unfortunately, we have discovered that in addition to building awareness and knowledge within the population that may be eligible to receive these benefits, there are also systemic roadblocks that exist within ISPs. For example, after an individual has been approved by the government to be eligible for ACP, the Comcast Chatbot keeps telling you how to apply for ACP when you are repeatedly indicating that you have been approved and have an ID. WiFiSherpa is working on addressing issues like this, in addition to utilizing the excellent work that has been accomplished by organizations, such as the

    Benton Institute for Broadband and Society.

    Programs like Lifeline and the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) play an important role in helping Americans get connected. Read more ACP and the importance of digital equity planning in our conversation with John Horrigan, senior fellow at the Benton Institute.
