May in the District of Columbia

As our nation and communities continue to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, our teams are working hard to keep first responders and customers connected. W are enrolling eligible customers in the FCC’s temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.

We’re also marking AAPI Heritage Month with a post from one of our company leaders, and we’re proud to be recognized by American Association of People with Disabilities.

AT&T Is Now Enrolling Customers in the FCC’s Temporary Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

We believe that broadband connectivity is essential for all Americans. People depend on technologies like the internet to stay connected to every part of their lives.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought national awareness to the lack of internet accessibility for millions of Americans – especially for low-income families. That’s why we are working to help households stay connected. AT&T is participating in the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to help eligible households with connectivity costs during the pandemic.

The monthly cost of broadband – after applying the EBB – can temporarily fall to as low as $0 a month.1

In these difficult economic times, the EBB will help qualifying households reduce wireline home internet or wireless service costs for activities like job searches, telehealth, remote work, and distance learning. EBB enrollment is now open, and the benefit can be applied to select plans for both new and existing AT&T and Cricket Wireless customers.
