Congress created the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program as part of its latest COVID-19 relief bill. Under the program, qualifying American households will be eligible for a monthly subsidy toward their broadband internet service. However, in order for them to take advantage of the discounted service, their internet provider will need to participate in the program.
In this Lunch and Learn, we'll take a look at the program from several prospectives. How do internet providers participate in the program? How do consumers benefit? And what does this mean for the future of making broadband internet more affordable for more Americans. Join us to learn more!
