IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) - Several people in the area could be losing their internet service now that the Affordable Connectivity Program has run out of money.

The ACP provided about 23 million American households with internet at low or no cost. The program stopped accepting new applications and enrollments on Feb. 7, 2024. April 2024 was the last month the program was fully funded.

If homeowners want to keep receiving internet service they can choose another low-cost internet plan from the same internet company they have a plan with or switch to different internet company.

If people can’t afford internet service, they can still visit local libraries and other establishments with free wi-fi to access the internet.
