Emergency Broadband Benefit Program for Consumers

Sign up Starting May 13, 2021 

The Emergency Broadband Benefit is an FCC program to help families and households struggling to afford internet service during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Communications Commission is asking for help to spread the word about the Emergency Broadband Benefit. This temporary program helps struggling families who know having a broadband connection is essential for households to gain access to virtual classrooms, jobs, healthcare services, and so much more.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit will provide a discount of up to $50 per month toward broadband service for eligible families and households who are struggling to stay connected during the pandemic. (Qualifying households on Tribal lands can receive a discount of up to $75 per month for service.) Eligible households can also receive a discount of up to $100 for the purchase of a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers.


These providers will be participating in the program. Visit www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit to learn more.
