The FCC is launching another new programme to help Americans pay for their home internet bill

Called the Affordable Connectivity Programme the extended programme is the successor to the Emergency Broadband Benefit deal that launched earlier this year. Both programmes are as they sound — and are meant to help ordinary Americans afford their internet bill. According to the FCC, beginning today households at or near the federal poverty level (see the chart below) will be eligible for a $30 discount on their home internet bill (that’s because WFH among other things probably isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.)

Starting on Friday, households with an income that is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines will receive $30 off their monthly internet bill

As of this writing, only AT&T and T-Mobile have actually joined the programme but many more are expected as the New Year has arrived.
