Comcast is proudly supporting the Federal Government’s Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB), a temporary benefit program available on all tiers of Xfinity Internet service for eligible households.
The EBB is designed to help low-income households connect to the internet and stay connected during the COVID-19 crisis. Qualified households can receive a temporary monthly credit of up to $50/month toward their internet service and leased internet equipment until the program’s funding runs out.
If you are an Internet Essentials customer, you automatically qualify for the program and simply need to enroll. Other qualifying criteria include a household members qualification for the Lifeline program (such as Medicaid and SNAP), free and reduced-price school lunch program, Pell Grant, or if the household has experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020. Eligibility can be confirmed at GetEmergencyBroadband.org.
For those qualified who do not have internet service, you may apply at InternetEssentials.com. Shop Xfinity at Xfinity.com. Once eligibility has been confirmed and you’ve ordered internet services, use the simple application form to enroll in the benefit program here: Xfinity.com/EBB.
