Emergency Broadband Benefit Program

Mercury Broadband was founded on the idea of bridging the rural broadband gap, and providing high-speed internet access to rural America. High speed internet is no longer a luxury, it is a necessity in modern life. More and more daily activities rely on access to reliable, high speed internet. Unfortunately, many rural communities in our country are without access to broadband internet, and have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 Pandemic. As part of the pandemic stimulus bill, the federal government has created the Emergency Broadband Benefit Program.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit 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.

In order to help our customers, we have partnered with the FCC to help deliver as much of this financial relief as possible. Our sales team can walk you through to application process.
