The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently posted a new consumer FAQ on the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, which the FCC is still working to make available but hopes to have in place for signup by the end of April 2021. The program will help households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic. The FAQ provides answers to common consumer questions on benefit eligibility, how the discount will be applied to broadband service costs, and program length. It also includes information on the enhanced Tribal benefit and the connected device benefit.
