Emergency Broadband Benefit Program to the Affordable Connectivity Program
On December 31, 2021, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is changing the name of the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). Customers enrolled in the EBB before that date will continue to receive their up to $50 EBB discount during a 60-day transition period, which will last from December 31, 2021 to March 1, 2022. After the transition period, EBB customers will be able to access the new FCC-established discount of up to $30 per month [plus any additional discounts for approved Lifeline customers]. EBB customers may switch their service offering at any time. EBB subscribers who qualified for the EBB through eligibility criteria that are not applicable to the ACP will be required by the FCC to demonstrate their eligibility 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 retain their benefit on March 1, 2022. Our updated Terms and Conditions will apply to you beginning on December 31, 2021.
