Breezeline - Affordable Connectivity Plans
Breezeline, the 8th largest cable operator (according to a February 2023 press release), participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The ACP helps qualified low-income individuals/households afford internet connectivity. In this fast-paced online world, the Affordable Connectivity Program helps to shorten the digital divide between the haves and have-nots.
Unfortunately, Breezeline doesn't have a free government phone program as they don't offer Lifeline benefits, but they do offer discounted internet plans. The short and sweet benefit of the ACP is that it provides discounts of up to $30 or up to $75 if you live on qualified Tribal Lands that can be applied to any of the Breezeline internet plans.
What Breezeline Offers and Where
As of this writing, February 2023, Breezeline services the following 13 states:
Their internet plans range in price from $19.99 per month to $59.99 per month. All plans include unlimited data but differ in the data transfer speed and the number of devices that would benefit from the plan. Here’s a quick summary of their plans:
Cost: $19.99 per month
The price above includes a $10 Autopay & Ecosafe discount. Without the discount, the prices range between $29.99 to $69.99 per month. Also, pricing may change depending on location.
I’m still trying to figure out why they offer two $39.99 plans when one plan is far superior to the other for the same price. Maybe there’s something in the fine print that I’m missing.
Depending on the plan you choose, your internet service could be either free or close to it.
