Verizon is committed to helping bridge the digital divide by making high-quality connectivity more affordable for customers in need. That’s why we’re participating in the FCC’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which helps low-income households pay for Internet and mobile service. As part of the program, for the first time, Verizon is offering free Internet with its Fios Forward program to qualifying ACP customers. These efforts are part of Citizen Verizon, the company’s responsible business plan for economic, environmental and social advancement. The company’s total 2020-2025 responsible business investment is slated to exceed $3 billion.
With Fios Forward and ACP, qualifying customers will have access to premium high-speed Internet without data caps, extra fees or equipment costs, helping them maintain connectivity for virtual learning, remote work, telehealth visits and more.
Fios Forward brings fastest speeds available at zero cost
Qualified ACP customers can now get free access to Verizon Fios’ 100% fiber optic Internet, with speeds starting at 200Mbps for downloads and uploads, crucial bandwidth for video-heavy applications. Fios is not only offering faster Internet speeds than competitors in the marketplace – unlike other providers who offer ACP, we are also removing hidden cost barriers, with no extra fees, no contracts and no router costs.
