Has anyone received the emergency broadband benefit?

Although I qualify through a Pell Grant, and the government approved me in about ten seconds, Cox won't sign me up. The third party site called id.me is a waste of time and rejected me for my name not matching my id, which is not true, my name matches my id perfectly.

I reported the situation to the FCC but if anyone knows how to actually get things to go through please let me know.

    Yeah I received it once and now being told that I'm getting it somewhere else. I've lived in the same place for 4 years. Just got off chat with a agent who left me on hold only to give me an 877 number that of course you can't reach anyone. I wasn't even worried about it until they offered if. Don't make *** up now.
