Did you know that online households can save £560 a year by paying for bills and doing their shopping online? This is just one of the benefits of being online – people also save time, stay in touch, find information and explore interests.
There are a staggering 11 million adults in the UK who are not online, and 90% of these people know someone who is online. If we all took the time to show someone offline the benefits of being online we’d be enabling everyone in the UK to enjoy a fuller life.
