What is the Emergency Broadband Benefit?

The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a temporary subsidy program from the Federal Government designed to help low-income households connect to the Internet and stay connected during the COVID-19 crisis. Qualified households can receive a temporary monthly credit of up to $50/month (up to $75/month for customers in Tribal lands) toward their Internet service and leased Internet equipment until the program's funding runs out.
After the conclusion of the EBB program, you'll be billed at Comcast's standard monthly prices, including any applicable taxes, fees, and equipment charges.

Am I eligible for this benefit?

If you're an Internet Essentials customer, you qualify for the Emergency Broadband Benefit and simply need to enroll in the program. Other qualifying criteria include a household member's qualification for the Lifeline program (such as Medicaid and SNAP), free and reduced-price school lunch program, or if the household experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020.
You will still need to connect services and apply to enroll following your eligibility check.
