Excess Telecom Disccounted ACP Plans
Excess Telecom is authorized to do business in all 50 states and offers free mobile broadband and a discounted device to eligible low-income individuals/families. They can make such an offer because they participate in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). The government-funded Affordable Connectivity Program attempts to close the gap between the technological haves and have-nots by making it easier for families to afford internet access.
The ACP gives discounts of $30 per month to help defray the cost of internet services. For those individuals/families living on qualified Tribal lands, the discount increases to $75 per month. The cost of the plans listed takes the $30 discount into consideration.

Below is a listing of Excess Telecom’s plans. The price of each plan includes the $30 discount. In other words, if you are not enrolled in ACP, add $30 to the prices listed below:

In addition to the plans listed above, new Excess Telecom ACP enrollees can take advantage of the one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a tablet.
An aside: This is totally unrelated to free government phones or ACP benefits. However, if you navigate the Excess Telecom website on a device with the sound turned on, you will hear a chime every time you view a different page on their site. The chime is unnecessary, and this writer found it to be annoying.

How to Enroll in ACP
After confirming eligibility, it’s time to enroll in the program. If you live in states other than California, Oregon, or Texas, visit the National Verifier website to apply for ACP benefits. If you live in one of the opt-out states of California, Oregon, or Texas, you are not subject to the National Verifier. Instead, click on the above link for your state and follow the directions outlined by the state’s governing authority.
Residents in all other states should gather the necessary documents before applying with the National Verifier. Below is a list of some of the documents you will need:
Having the necessary documentation makes for a smooth application process. It should only take about a half hour to get approved. Sometimes it takes longer depending on the volume of applicants or document verification.
Once approved, you’ll get an ACP identification number. With that number, you can apply for discounted service from Excess Telecom.
