You may be eligible for a $50 monthly coronavirus pandemic discount on your home broadband bill starting next week.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program was included as part of the roughly $900 billion COVID-19 relief package passed by Congress in December 2020 and signed by President Donald Trump. It set aside $3.2 billion for the Federal Communications Commission to cover the program.

Internet connectivity has been vital during the coronavirus pandemic as more Americans worked from home and more students attended school at home. “Families in every corner of the country have been struggling to get online throughout this pandemic. For those families, we now say help is around the corner,” FCC Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement last week.
