What IS AVAILABLE
The Emergency Broadband Benefit program is a temporary FCC program aimed at helping struggling households pay for internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Up to a $50/month discount on internet service.
- Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands.
- One Amazon Fire HD tablet, 10.1” 1080 Full HD, 32 GB for $49.99 (normally around $100) after qualifying.
Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. The program will end when the Federal fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.
Once the program ends, you can cancel your service if you cannot pay. If you are receiving Lifeline Program Benefits, you will continue to get that benefit after the EBB ends. If you are signing up for new internet service, and the funds run out before your installation appointment, you can cancel your installation.
