Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB) is an FCC Program to help households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, and virtual classrooms.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit will provide a temporary discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households.
