I qualified for ACP and have been receiving discounts but was just notified that I am no longer eligible. Why?

The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a federal government program that provides a discount on monthly high-speed internet service bills for qualifying low-income households. ACP is scheduled to launch at Clarity Wireless on January 20, 2022.

How do I apply for the ACP benefit?

To apply for the ACP benefit, you should:

  • Go to ACPbenefit.org, fill out the application form and receive your approval from the National Verifier. 
  • Join Clarity Wireless and choose from the largest selection of 4G/5G phones in prepaid.
  • Visit My Account on Clarity Wireless and fill out the application form for the ACP benefit or stop by your nearby Clarity Wireless store.
  • You will receive a text message letting you know whether you have been successfully enrolled in ACP with Clarity Wireless.
Who on my account is going to get the notifications?

The primary account holder will receive all notifications associated with the ACP program. If no primary account holder is established on the account, the billing party responsible will receive the notifications.

Why do I have to wait for my next bill to get the discount? Shouldn’t I get it now since I qualify now?

Clarity Wireless will apply the discount to your account as quickly as possible, but application of the discount in Clarity Wireless systems may cause a short delay.

Will I keep the ACP credit forever?

The ACP credit will be in place until the federal government funds for the program are depleted (and not renewed), conditions of your eligibility change, or your service with Clarity Wireless ends.

Can I change my phone number after the ACP discount code has been applied to my account?

You can change your number and still retain the discount. There are processes in place to verify if a phone number changes. 

I want to switch from [AT&T, VERIZON, ETC], and I have an ACP credit, can I bring my discount with me?

Yes, you can transfer your ACP benefit to Clarity Wireless! When you fill out your information with Clarity Wireless, make sure you check the box to transfer your ACP benefit to Clarity Wireless.

What happens to my service after the ACP Program ends?

The automatic ACP credit will be removed from your account, and your rate plan will continue at full price. If you changed rate plans to take advantage of the ACP credit, you will not be placed back on the original plan.

I have home internet AND my cell phone has internet – do I get a discount on both?

No, the FCC stipulates that the ACP discount can only be applied to one service for each eligible household. If eligible, you may apply for the ACP credit to your Clarity Wireless rate plan, but you could also not apply for an ACP credit to your home internet provider. Eligible households are entitled to a one ACP benefit only.

What happens if I do not use my phone?

Under FCC rules, you must use your Clarity Wireless service at least once every 45 days to keep your account active. If no activity is registered on your account after 30 days, you will enter a 15 day cure period before the Affordable Connectivity Program discount is removed and you are de-enrolled from the Affordable Connectivity Program. To maintain the Affordable Connectivity Program discount, simply place or receive a call, send a text, or use your mobile data (off a Wi-Fi network) each month. If your Affordable Connectivity Program discount is removed due to inactivity, you may reapply at any time by visiting https://claritywirelesstx.com/acp/.
