EarthLink Partners with the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) Program to Help Customers Stay Connected and Save Money

July 15, 2021 GMT

ATLANTA, July 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- EarthLink, a leading internet service provider, today announced its partnership with the government-funded Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) program. Qualified current and prospective customers can now receive up to $50 each month off their internet bill for a limited time.

EarthLink offers fiber and DSL internet service with speeds up to 1 Gig. Unlike many other providers, with EarthLink’s EBB program, there are no activation fees, no credit checks, and no internet data caps. Additionally, a wireless gateway device to deliver in-home WiFi is included for new EarthLink EBB customers, along with free professional installation.

“EarthLink is proud to be a part of this federal stimulus program that’s keeping Americans connected on the heels of a yearlong crisis,” said Glenn Goad, EarthLink CEO. “We want to make it easy and affordable for customers to stay online so they can support their families, look for new job opportunities, take care of their health, and ensure their kids have access to educational resources.”


If a customer qualifies for EarthLink’s EBB program, the monthly discount will only apply to charges for broadband service and modem rental. The benefit is limited to one account per eligible household and is only applicable where EarthLink internet service is available.

Customers can see if they qualify and enroll by going to earthlink.net/EBB or by calling 833-787-2118.
