Fastwyre Broadband ACP Plans
As a participant in the Affordable Connectivity Program, Fastwyre offers discounts of up to $30 off your monthly internet plan. This discount only applies to qualified low-income families/individuals living in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, and Louisiana.
Fastwyre Broadband Plan
According to their website, Fastwyre offers three broadband plans as follows:
Download speed up to 1GB
Download speed up to 500MB
Download speeds up to 100Mbps
The monthly charges listed above do not include the $30 ACP discount. If you qualify for ACP, the prices would be $30 cheaper.
Qualifying for the Affordable Connectivity Program
To enjoy the discounts of the Affordable Connectivity Program, you must meet at least one of the following criteria:
For a complete listing of programs, go to the Do I Qualify page on the Affordable Connectivity website. Sometimes qualifying programs may vary by state.
Signing up for ACP
Now that you've met the eligibility criteria go over to the FCC website Get Internet Now to apply. Make sure you have the appropriate documents to prove eligibility. In addition to proving eligibility, you'll need a government-issued ID to prove you are who you say you are.
Once your application is approved and you're issued an ID number from the National Verifier, go to Fastwyre's site, select a plan that best suits your needs, and sign up for service.
What I find interesting about Fastwyre's application process is they ask you to email or call them to submit your application ID. Then about 48 hours later, they'll let you know if you're verified as eligible for the program. If your eligibility is valid, the discount is applied to the next bill statement. Maybe it's just me, but I would think the eligibility/approval process should occur prior to signing up for service. After all, if the FCC approves you for the Affordable Connectivity Program, it should be an automatic approval for Fastwyre. Oh well, each company runs differently.
Fastwyre's Better Business Bureau Rating
Sometimes when I review companies participating in the Affordable Connectivity or Lifeline programs, I do a quick look on Better Business Bureau website to find out more about the company. While Fastwyre is not an accredited member of the BBB, it still has a rating based on customer reviews. Unfortunately, as of this writing, Fastwyre's rating is an "F" and rated 1 out of 5 stars from 10 customer reviews.
An F rating does not mean that Fastwyre is a horrible company. It means you need to do your research on this or any other broadband company before signing up.
