Cricket Wireless is participating in the federally funded Emergency Broadband Benefit Program (EBB), which is for qualifying households during the COVID-19 crisis. The EBB Program helps lower the monthly cost of eligible wireless service.
Cricket cannot apply for the EBB benefit until you are approved AND you have activated your service on an EBB eligible plan with Cricket. New customers who want the EBB benefit applied at the time of activation will need to visit a store to purchase service and enroll. New customers can purchase a new device or bring their own and be eligible for EBB enrollment. Otherwise, your benefit will be applied to your next month’s service after enrollment is complete.
