Emergency Broadband Benefit Program Coming to Appalachian Wireless

Posted on Monday, April 26, 2021


Appalachian Wireless is dedicated to keeping you connected to your neighbors and loved ones. We are proud to announce that we will be participating in the FCC Emergency Broadband Benefit Program to help during these critical times. With this program, the U.S. Federal Government will be offering a subsidy to help pay for wireless service to eligible households impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The EBB is only available on the 25GB Unlimited plan*.

If you or someone in your household meets the qualifications the Federal Government has set, you may be eligible to receive a monthly discount of up to $50/mo to help pay for your wireless service through the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program. When the program launches, please return to find out more information on how to qualify, apply, and enjoy the unbeatable service Appalachian Wireless provides.
