Emergency Broadband Internet Benefit

On May 12, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) launched its new Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program to help families and households who are struggling to afford internet service during the pandemic.

Eligible households are be able to;

  • Enroll in the Program to receive a monthly discount off the cost of broadband service from an approved internet service provider.
  • Receive a one-time discount on a connected device if purchased through their internet provider.  

Eligibility also expands to students who received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year.

Be sure to watch the PSA below produced as a public service by our Public Education Government (PEG) channel colleagues at the Plymouth Area Community Television to find out if your household is eligible!
