ABC for Students provided a voucher for internet service through June 30, 2021. On that day, support for internet service through the ABC for Student Program will automatically discontinue. However, all ABC for Students participants are eligible for the new national Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program. The EBB provides a temporary discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households. The EBB is limited to one discounted monthly service plan per household. For more details and the most up-to-date information on the EBB program, visit the program’s site at www.GetEmergencyBroadband.org
ABC for Students is here to help you transition your internet service benefit to this new national program so that you may receive continued support for broadband access. Please call our Ambassador Center toll-free at 1-888-212-4998 with any questions or follow the instructions below to opt in beginning May 12, 2021.
