Grab Your New Tablet & FREE Data & Talk

Tablets serve as valuable tools for education, work, and everyday activities. Here are some ways low-income families can obtain free tablets.


Best Government Tablet Programs

Affordable Connectivity Program

The program helped provide discounts towards internet service for eligible households. It offered discounts of up to $30 per month for qualifying families and up to $75 for those on Tribal lands. There was also a one-time benefit to help purchase a tablet or computer if a certain amount was contributed towards the cost.

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) ended in June 2024 due to a lack of congressional funding.

While the Affordable Connectivity Program is no longer available, your household may still qualify for a discount on internet service.

Lifeline has been a lifesaver! With my fixed income, I couldn’t afford a phone plan otherwise. The discount helps me stay connected with family and friends, especially my grandkids who live out of state.

The ACP was a huge help for my family. We were struggling to afford internet during remote learning for the kids. The discount made a big difference, allowing us to stay connected for school and work.pen_spark

Since ACP ended, I’m looking into Lifeline. Even though the discount is smaller, it might help me manage my phone bill a little better. Every bit counts!pen_spark

I had trouble finding an internet provider that participated in ACP in my area. It seemed like a good program, but availability was limited. Now I’m worried about affording the internet again.
