QUINCY, Mass. — Atlantic Broadband, the eighth-largest cable operator in the U.S., will provide broadband connectivity at discounted prices for financially struggling households through the Federal Communications Commission’s Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.
Under the program starting Wednesday, Atlantic Broadband will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households (and up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal lands) so that they can be connected for distance learning, work from home, telehealth and other critical online destinations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
New, existing and prior customers that meet financial eligibility requirements may choose from various internet packages with speeds designed to meet a range of household needs. The Emergency Broadband Benefit discount will be applied as a monthly credit against the cost of the Atlantic Broadband internet service selected by each household.
