Required Disclosures. The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a limited-time program operated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that provides discounts on monthly broadband Internet access service and certain connected devices. The EBB monthly service and device discounts are non-transferrable. An eligible household is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount. EBB Program benefits may be obtained from any participating provider of your choosing and your monthly service benefit may be transferred to another provider at any time.
When the FCC announces the end the program or we end our promotional FREE EBB service offer, we will notify you and you will revert to receiving only the standard FREE Lifeline plan where available and if you are eligible. Where Lifeline plans are not available, you may keep your service by paying the applicable undiscounted rate of $59.25/$49.25 plus fees and taxes.
Devices we make available for EBB program discounts will be available here. Our standard terms and conditions apply.
The EBB shares the same qualifying eligibility programs as Lifeline – participation in SNAP, Medicaid, SSI, Federal Public Housing Assistance, Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit Fund, and income at or below 135% of the federal poverty level. For a limited-time determined by the FCC, unemployment may qualify you for Lifeline and the EBB. Additional eligibility programs are unique to EBB and do not qualify for Lifeline. These include Pell Grants, Free and Reduced Price School Lunch and Breakfast, as well as reduced wages in certain instances. Program eligibility will be determined for the FCC by Universal Service Administrative Company’s National Verifier and National Lifeline Accountability Database, or an alternative verification process approved by the FCC.
Your EBB plan is separate from your Lifeline plan. For your convenience, we will load this plan monthly on top of your existing Lifeline plan using your current phone number. If you would like to have your EBB plan on a separate device with a different phone number, please call customer care at 611 or 888-792-0076 right after you opt-in below.
