The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive:
- Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals
- Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
- A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)
This program is not limited to wired service providers. If your household is outside the footprint of Spectrum or CenturyLink, you may apply for reimbursement from a wireless service such as AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon. To view eligible Service Providers in Ohio, click here.
