Get Help With Monthly Internet Bills

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program gives NC low-income households a discount on internet services so they don’t have to decide between purchasing broadband and other necessities as they work and learn at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eligible NC households may receive a discount of up to $50 per month for their internet bill. That rises to $75 a month for broadband service on tribal lands. Households may also receive $100 to buy a laptop, desktop or tablet through their internet provider.
