Emergency Broadband Benefit 

The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is a temporary federally funded program to help families stay connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program is available to those who have experienced a substantial loss of income, meet federal poverty guidelines or qualify based on other criteria. Assurance Wireless is an Emergency Broadband Benefit provider. 

How Do I Qualify for an EBB plan?

Not every EBB offer is the same. With Assurance Wireless Unlimited, you receive a FREE smartphone, plus all the following benefits every month:

Assurance Wireless Unlimited
  • FREE Unlimited Data
  • FREE Unlimited Texts
  • FREE Unlimited Minutes
  • FREE 10GB Hotspot Data

During congestion, heavy data users (>35GB/mo.) and customers choosing Assurance Wireless or similarly prioritized plans (e.g., T-Mobile Essentials, Metro by T-Mobile) may notice lower speeds than other customers due to data prioritization.
