USAC's Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is experiencing high demand. We appreciate your patience as we respond to consumer calls and emails as quickly as we can. Thank you.

What is the EBB?

The Emergency Broadband Benefit program provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive a discount of up to $50/month on your qualifying broadband service and associated equipment rentals, and subsidized equipment.
(Initial Six Months Free promo means that Xchange will provide the EBB subsidy for at least 6 months, even if the program ends earlier. The EBB Program will run until the earlier of 6 months after the end of the Pandemic, or when the Program distributes all funds.)
Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household (in addition to existing Lifeline benefits)
