Connected Family Broadband Internet

 

Please note this program ended on December 31, 2021 and has been replaced by the Affordable Connectivity Program.

WhyFly customers currently enrolled in the Emergency Broadband Benefit program will continue to receive EBB benefits through February 28. Most customers will be automatically enrolled in the ACP program beginning March 1st, however, households that qualified for the EBB due to substantial loss of income as a result of job loss or furlough since February 29, 2020, or by meeting the eligibility criteria of WhyFly's COVID-19 program, will need to re-qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program.

 

What's Changed?

The maximum monthly benefit is being reduced from $50 to $30 per household. 

Households have new ways to qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program such as: receiving WIC benefits or having an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.

If your EBB to ACP transition needs attention, you will be notified by USAC. Customers will have 30 days to respond to that notice, reapply and provide new eligibility information to WhyFly or their monthly service will return to the standard subscription rate of $55/month.
