70+ Years of Connecting Communities
We know times get tough. If you or someone you know is experiencing financial difficulties, we encourage you to see if you qualify for support through the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program, a FCC (Federal Communications Commission) funded program that provides a discount up to $50/month towards broadband services for eligible households, and up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they co-pay more than $10 and less than $50 towards the purchase price.
We’re pleased to participate in EBB to help keep you connected because safety, education, paying bills, job searches, connecting with loved ones is essential.
Check your eligiblity by applying online or by mail.
