EBBEmergency Broadband Benefit helps struggling households during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is funded by the FCC and provides a monthly broadband credit of $49.95 to certain broadband plans.  

 A household may be eligible if one member qualifies for the Lifeline program, receives benefits under the free and reduced price school lunch program, received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year, meets the eligibility criteria for an existing low-income or COVID-19 program, or experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020.    

To see if you qualify please go to:  https://getemergencybroadband.org/ .  If you are approved print the approval confirmation and bring it to your nearest Highland Communications or Highland Telephone office to enroll in the program.  This is a temporary program and will end when the FCC Fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner. 

If you have questions or you are not currently a Highland Communications, LLC broadband customer please call 423-346-4050 or 423-569-3535.
