Find Out if You’re Eligible to Save $50/Month on Your Internet Bill
The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is an exciting initiative that can help you stay connected and save! This new government program is helping to bring affordable broadband internet service into the homes of older Americans.
Eligible households can receive a $50/month discount on broadband internet service, and a one-time, $100 discount on a new laptop, tablet, or desktop computer.
OATS‘ Aging Connected initiative is helping older adults utilize this benefit. Find out if you qualify to save on your internet bill by visiting AgingConnected.org/EBB.
