Jen Kiggans Set to Raise Monthly Internet Costs for Over 45,000 Virginia Households

Tomorrow, full funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) will expire, forcing tens of thousands of Virginia families to face stark price hikes on their monthly internet bills.

The ACP – a product of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – serves over 45,000 households in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, providing discounts for monthly internet bills. Nationwide, nearly half of the beneficiaries are military families.

A recent survey conducted by the FCC found that more than two-thirds of beneficiaries to the ACP said they had inconsistent or no internet service prior to the program’s existence.

While House Republicans like Kiggans continue to cave to the demands of Donald Trump and Marjorie Taylor Greene, House Democrats have introduced common sense legislation to replenish the fund to keep monthly bills low for millions of Americans who rely on access to affordable internet. Kiggans has thus far refused to co-sponsor the bipartisan bill that would lower costs for internet bills.  

DCCC Spokesperson Lauryn Fanguen:
“Jen Kiggans is once again rubber-stamping the extreme Republican agenda by refusing to lift a finger to lower internet costs for Virginians. That says everything you need to know about her ‘priorities.’”
