The Emergency Broadband Benefit is a temporary government program. It will expire when funds are exhausted or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declares the end of the COVID-19 health emergency. At the conclusion of the government program, our standard internet rates will apply. Customers will receive a 30-day notice before the end of the Program. When the program ends, your broadband service will be discontinued unless you contact us to continue your service. Should you choose to continue your broadband service after the EBB Program ends, you will be charged the standard, undiscounted rate reflected in the internet service section of your bill.
