Emergency Program Gives $50 Off Your Internet Bill Starting Today!
As part of an emergency government program, you can apply today to receive $50 off your internet bill! This is part of the huge COVID-19 funding package we received back in December and now is the time to start applying.
The $3.2 billion program is part of the $900 billion December pandemic-relief package. The government is increasing spending on broadband as the pandemic made stark that millions of Americans did not have access to, and could not afford, broadband at a time when jobs, school and health care was moving online.

I love the idea of giving away these mini internet stimulus packages. The world is very much wrapped up in the internet. Everything we do from going to school, to ordering food, everything is now used via the internet. But for those that live in low-income households, the internet can be more of a luxury than a necessity. I know because I came from a low-income household and when times got rough, we just focused on staying warm and eating for the day.
I hope this program lasts at least until the end of the year. That way more families get that little bit of help that could make a major difference in the long run.
