Eligible subscribers who are enrolled in EBB Services as of 6:00 PM Eastern Time on December 30, 2021, will continue to receive service with an up to $50 EBB program subsidy (or for households on Tribal lands, up to $75) during a 60-day transition period, which lasts from December 31, 2021 to March 1, 2022. The discount amount available to subscribers who are enrolled in the ACP after the transition period will be up to $30 per month. EBB subscribers who qualified for the EBB through eligibility criteria that are not applicable to the ACP will be required by USAC to demonstrate their eligibility in the National Verifier to receive an ACP benefit using the ACP criteria before the end of the transition period. EBB subscribers will receive additional information if they are required to take additional steps to transition to the ACP benefit on March 1, 2022.

Other factors, including your device, network availability from our underlying carrier, your proximity to cellular towers, and environmental factors, may affect speeds.
