The California Broadband Council and the Federal Communications Commission have partnered to provide nationwide internet assistance.
Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a limited-time benefit for low-income consumers that will show up as a credit on your bill for High-Speed Home Internet and could pay for a computing device. The U.S. Congress and President established this benefit in 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic emergency. EBB may be valid for 6 months.
Broadband is the technical term for access to the Internet. Both words are used and both mean access to the Internet.
Eligible Consumers Can Receive
Up to $50 per month on Home Internet service
Up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal Lands
One-time discount of up to $100 for a computer or a tablet (offered in California by human-I-T when buying their broadband service)
