“On Wednesday, April 26th, PCC partnered with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Outreach staff to enroll eligible residents in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) at the Bamberg County Library.
The ACP is an FCC program that helps families connect to internet service by providing a monthly benefit. The benefit provides up to $30 a month, discount for internet services, and income at or below the level depending on household size.
5 participants from our training classes signed up for the ACP and 1 new person reached out for help with her internet. Thank you to FCC staff members Lyle Ishida, Alma Hughes, and Renee Coles for all their help with the event, as well as PCC staff members Kathy Schwarting, Nicole Smoak, Ashlee Parra, Ramona Midkiff, and Marin Moody.
We are grateful and proud of the impact that is being made in Bamberg, South Carolina and other rural and underserved areas across the state.”
