Rochester, NY.— May 1, 2023— GoNetspeed today announced the GoCommunity program which will allow the company to bring its fast and affordable internet service to more households through the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), a program administered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). GoCommunity members have the opportunity to gain free access to GoNetspeed’s 100/100Mbps fiber internet package through the ACP.
GoCommunity is available for new or existing residential GoNetspeed customers who meet the qualifications for ACP. GoCommunity members with access to GoNetspeed’s services in Connecticut, Maine, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, and Vermont will be able to use the $30 ACP credit to receive free access to GoNetspeed’s 100/100Mbps fiber internet service package or the option to apply the credit toward any of GoNetspeed’s High-Speed Fiber, DSL, or Cable internet plans.

“High-speed internet is critical, and we are proud to partner with FCC to establish GoCommunity as a link to bridge the gap for homes that need connectivity but struggle to afford the costs associated,” said Richard Clark, GoNetspeed President & CEO. “This program will provide opportunities for qualifying members that level the playing field for working and educating from home.”
Those interested in joining GoNetspeed’s GoCommunity program can confirm eligibility by applying online at affordableconnectivity.gov. Once approved, simply calling 855-891-7291 will connect customers to a GoNetspeed customer service representative who can apply the credit to existing accounts or establish new service.
Through a legacy of innovation and a commitment to customer service, GoNetspeed has recently accelerated the expansion of its fiber networks throughout nine states. GoNetspeed continues to deliver more fiber, more access, more speed and better reliability to residents and businesses. With access to 100% fiber internet, GoNetspeed customers have access to symmetrical upload and download speeds, ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps).
*The Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) is a program created by Congress and implemented by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to assist eligible households to pay for internet services. Eligibility is determined based on ACP rules. Eligible households must use the service to keep the subsidy and in the event the customer has (30) consecutive days without any internet usage, the customer may no longer be eligible to receive the subsidy. Eligible households may receive the program benefit from any participating provider and may transfer the benefit to another provider at any time. Offers do not include taxes and fees. Additional installation fees may also apply. Regular rates apply upon service suspension, cancellation, downgrades, or ACP conclusion. In the event that ACP is discontinued, and the FCC announces an end date, you will be charged the undiscounted rate if you continue to receive service after the end date.
GoNetspeed, a high-speed 100% fiber internet provider serving residential and business customers in Maine, Alabama, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, and West Virginia, formed a partnership with Oak Hill Capital (“Oak Hill”) in January 2021, allowing GoNetspeed to accelerate the expansion of its fiber network throughout the Northeastern U.S. Adding thousands of new service areas every year, GoNetspeed is one of the largest independent internet providers in the east.
