In the UK there are still 8.4 million people who have yet to use the Internet and 5% of schoolchildren do not have access to a PC at home to assist with their education and learning.
As initiatives go, ones which provide computers for as little as £99, are winners. That is exactly what the Get Online @ Home initiative does and it’s available now.
Backed by Microsoft, Get Online @ Home aims to provide affordable, refurbished, internet-ready computers for those who may not be able to afford, or have access to the internet. From a local council perspective, it’s a great solution for your residents who might benefit from this offer.
There are a range of options available to choose from – if you’re on certain benefits, you can pick up a desktop computer for £99, meanwhile anyone else can buy one for just £149!
Or, if you prefer a laptop, those receiving certain benefits can buy one for £169, alternatively everyone else only need spend £199.
All PCs come with a selection of Microsoft software, warranty, support and easy installation guidance and information on the most cost-effective Internet broadband deals currently available.
To find out more, please see the Get Online @ Home website (featuring some great case studies).
Attending BETT 2012 this week (starting today!)? Microsoft’s Get Online @ Home team will be there on our big stand in the middle of Olympia! They’re ready to help answer any questions you may have.
