Cricket Wireless is helping make wireless service more affordable to millions of American households by participating in the FCC’s Emergency Broadband Benefit program. The temporary benefit – up to $50 a month ($75 for those on Tribal lands) for eligible households – takes the monthly cost of wireless service to $10 or less per month during the time the EBB benefit is available. This past year dealt a financial blow to many Americans. Tens of millions of customers are struggling to make ends meet, increasing connectivity challenges. Cricket Wireless wants to do our part by helping bridge this digital divide, helping the many underserved households who are unable to afford broadband connectivity to work at home or enable their children to engage in remote learning.
