I'm pondering how much the 3 yrs free charging would benefit me. Looking at Locate a public EV charger | Electrify America , it shows the EA stations, but not much information. Do they all have DC fast charging? If so what it the max power? If it says CCS does that mean it's DC fast charging? According to wikipedia CCS is type 1, 2, and DC fast.

You are better off using Chargeway or PlugShare, and filter for EA only, and then filter for minimum charging capacity.
Yes, CCS is the standard connector for DC fast charging, and the one every non-Tesla vehicle uses except for Nissan Leafs (those use ChaDeMo, which you can find one or two of at EA stations).

The latest version of the EA app released within the past couple of weeks (at least Android version) has a good filter feature that would give you what you are looking for. You can specify minimum charge power among other charging station attributes in your search.

I can confirm there is a good filter on iOS as well. I personally have only tried to use EA stations 3 times. The first time I had no luck and the last 2 worked well. With the last time going back to the chargers that didn’t work for me the first time. I use ChargePoint and EVgo’s more often and gave RFID cards for both which has saved me when there seems to be network errors with the charger.

Yes I just watched a charging training vid here which said all EA stations will do DC fast charging at least 125kw max. that the ID.4 can do.
