Low-income Americans benefit from cheap internet. So do the providers

“Two years ago, U.S. lawmakers created a $14.2 billion fund to help low-income families across America pay for internet service they would otherwise struggle to afford. If the subsidy isn’t renewed, it could also jeopardize other federal initiatives that are aimed at helping close the digital divide, because many of them require internet service providers to participate in the ACP, according to the Pew Charitable Trusts. It would also leave providers the difficult choice of keeping or cutting customers who suddenly can’t pay their bills.”
