Affordable Connectivity Program benefits?
The Affordable Connectivity Program (https://acpbenefit.org/), part of NY Gov. Kathy Hochul's ConnectALL Initiative, offers "Up to $30/month discount on internet service" for eligible households. If one enrolled in the ACP through Spectrum, would there be any benefit over using Spectrum's Everyday Low Price (ELP) plan with one's own router and thus paying $19.99/month? I presume the discount would be greater than or equal to $0 and less than $19.99, as I somehow can't see Spectrum offering free service.
Oh, and would one then be unable to use one's own router? Some of the ACP documentation I've seen suggests this might be the case.
Alas, these are questions ACP support seems unable to answer.
