The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that partners with wireless carriers, like Boost Mobile, to provide a temporary discount on a monthly mobile hotspot hotspot plan or a smartphone plan for qualifying low-income households. Eligible households can receive:
- Qualified households on Tribal Lands are eligible for a free Boost Mobile 35 GB smartphone plan valued at $60 or a free mobile hotspot plan valued at $50, limited to one per qualifying household.
- A one-time discount on a supporting mobile hotspot device, if applying for the monthly mobile hotspot plan discount
Only one monthly mobile hotspot plan or smartphone plan discount and one mobile hotspot device discount (if applying for the monthly mobile hotspot plan discount) is allowed per household.
The program will end when government funding for the EBB Program ends, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.
- [Once the EBB Program ends, customers will be subject to Boost’s regular rates, terms and conditions.]
