"Improving local broadband opportunities for our community has been a focus for several years as we understand fast and reliable internet service is a necessity for our business community and citizens. It is why we partnered with SignalNet (a wireless broadband company) in early 2020 to provide an additional option for our community. It is also why we are very excited to welcome Peoples with the fiber-to-home product during this Phase 1 project", says City Manager Clint Hardeman.
The ACP provides up to $30 per month (or $75 per month on Tribal Lands), making many internet plans FREE. The program also provides a one-time discount of $100 for a laptop or tablet. Families that receive free and reduced school lunch; WIC or SNAP benefits; or are enrolled in other programs like Medicaid, Head Start, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) qualify.
