DE is dedicated to helping our communities stay connected affordably. We are proud to now participate in the Federal Government’s Affordable Connectivity Program, which replaces the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. If you qualify, and depending on the speed you choose, your Internet service could be at a reduced price with this $30 monthly credit.
Eligible households receive up to $30 monthly bill credit towards internet service. Bulk internet and commercial accounts excluded. Limit one credit per household. Terms, conditions, and restrictions apply. Credit will be applied until ACP funding is exhausted, at which time customers will be responsible for full payment of the monthly bill without the credit at DE then-current rates. The discount benefit is portable to and from other participating providers but is not transferable to other individuals or households. Nonpayment may result in service suspension and/or downgrade.
DE is proud to participate in the FCC Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) to help provide fast and reliable connectivity to customers struggling to afford Internet service. We are committed to narrowing the digital divide, and the FCC Affordable Connectivity Program aligns with our purpose of keeping customers and communities connected to loved ones, work, and school.Learn More
