FCC Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

Thank You For Your Interest

The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is an FCC program to help households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, and virtual classrooms. Beginning on May 12, 2021 eligible households can enroll in the program to receive a monthly discount off the cost of broadband Internet service.

MaxxSouth has been approved as an Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) provider. Read below to learn more about the program, determine if your household is eligible, and to apply to participate.

  • I understand the following:

    • This is a U.S. government program that reduces my internet bill.
    • Should the program end or I leave the program otherwise, I will have the option to continue to receive services subject to MaxxSouth Broadband’s regular rates, terms, and conditions.
    • This program is limited to one per household. A household is defined as anyone living at the same address who shares income and household expenses.
    • The program credit I receive cannot be used by any other individual or household.
    • I may choose to participate in program from any participating provider.
    • I may transfer the benefit to another participating provider at any time during this program.
    • I allow MaxxSouth Broadband to transmit my information to the National Lifeline Accountability Database to enroll into the program.
    • At the conclusion of the program, the last month’s discount may be reduced based on availability of funds, as determined by the FCC.
