At install, if you are renting our router, our technician will give you your password or show you where you can find it.
Many routers have the password on a label somewhere on the router.
On our router, this will be on a sticker on the barcode label marked “WPA Pre-Shared Key” or “Password Key,” depending on the model you have.
On the device you wish to connect, find the Wi-Fi settings (see the documentation for your device if you don’t know where this is), choose the Wi-Fi connection that matches your ICC Wi-Fi connection, and enter the password when prompted.
If your device gives you an option to use the push button on your router, locate the WPS button, press and hold for three seconds—then the router will send the password to your device for you.
If none of the above steps help, give us a call—we may be able to reset your password for you remotely.
Wi-Fi is a wireless network connection method between the device you’re using and a router in your home. Internet is the service you are subscribing to through your internet service provider (hopefully us!).
Your Wi-Fi-enabled devices don’t connect to our service; they connect to the wireless (Wi-Fi) router in your home. Then the router connects to our service to pass the data to and from the internet using your network.
Most of the service complaints we receive are related to issues between the customers’ devices (tablets, smart TVs, mobile phones, laptops, smart speakers, etc.) and the router, not with the service we provide to the home. You may need a better router or may have a device in your network crashing the connection for everything else.
If you’re having trouble with devices connecting, we may be able to help or make recommendations! Please give us a call first so we can look at your account to ensure the issue you’re having isn’t a problem with the internet connection.

Once you’ve submitted the application, a member of our customer care team will contact you to finalize enrollment and schedule your installation if you’re a new customer!

Learn more about how a household is defined by visiting this site: https://getemergencybroadband.org.
Yes. You can also combine these benefits with other state and local benefits where available. They can be applied to the same qualifying service or separately to a Lifeline service and an Affordable Connectivity Program service with the same or different providers. For example, an eligible household could have a Lifeline-supported mobile phone service and a separate home broadband service that is supported through the ACP.

The Affordable Connectivity Program provides a monthly discount for broadband service up to $30 per eligible household. The discount will be applied to your broadband service, but the ultimate cost to you will depend on the eligible plan you select.
The Affordable Connectivity Program can be applied to the cost of a service bundle that includes broadband, voice, texting, and/or associated equipment. If your bundle also includes TV or telephone service, you will be responsible for that portion of your bill, as well as any services that are above the monthly discount.
Congress recently created the Affordable Connectivity Program, a long-term, $14 billion program, which will replace the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. This investment in broadband affordability will help ensure we can afford the internet connections we need for work, school, health care and more for a long time.
Broadlinc will provide notice about the last date or billing cycle that the full benefit will apply to your bill and the date or billing cycle that a partial benefit will apply to your bill, in addition to information about the cost of your broadband service after the program ends. Additionally, Broadlinc will place a message on all customers’ bills each month reminding them that this is a temporary program and the estimated end date is six months from start of the program. Emails will also be sent.
Households will need to opt in or request to continue broadband services with their provider. If you don’t opt in or select a new service plan, your broadband service will end once the program ends. You’ll be required to answer a question on your e-sign document and application to indicate whether you wish to continue service and be billed once program ends. NOTE: if you have an old bill with Broadlinc, we will require you to pay that balance either in full or with a payment plan if approved to continue service once the program ends.

NOTE: if you have an old bill with Broadlinc, we will require you to pay that balance either in full or with a payment plan if approved to continue service once the program ends.
Yes. The monthly discount can be used to cover routers, modems, hotspot devices, and antennas if offered as monthly rental costs in addition to your broadband service cost. Keep in mind the total monthly discount remains $30 or the total of your bill, whichever is less. This will not cover any extra equipment and modem outlet charges where a home has two modems.
Participating broadband service providers can be reimbursed up to $100 if they supply a connected device to a household if that household pays more than $10 but less than $50 for the device. In other words, to take advantage of this benefit it must be done through your participating broadband provider and you must contribute a portion of the cost. The device benefit is limited to a laptop, a desktop computer, or a tablet. It does not include cell phones, large phones, or “phablets” that can make cellular calls. Broadlinc is not participating in this part of the program, as we do not offer eligible equipment.
