Comcast Encourages Refunding the Affordable Connectivity Program

Comcast NBCUniversal ranked No. 13 on the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc 2023 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.


The federal government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) has helped connect more than 20 million households to the internet since it was launched nearly two years ago.
