FCC Hosts Roundtable on Emergency Broadband Benefit Program
Tomorrow, February 12, at 10 a.m., the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will host a roundtable discussion on the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, which will be livestreamed at https://www.fcc.gov/live. The $3.2 billion program authorizes eligible households to receive a discount off the cost of broadband service (up to $50 a month) and certain connected devices during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participating providers can be reimbursed for such discounts. The roundtable discussions will focus on how to build awareness of the program, how to create an effective enrollment process, and broadband provider participation and consumer choice in the program.
