Get Emergency Broadband
The "get emergency broadband" service is a short term service - it will end when it runs out of money or 6 months after the Department of Health & Human services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.
Lifeline is an on-going service that provides a discount of up to $9.25/month for qualifying broadband or bundled services.
