In 2011 Go on UK and Microsoft teamed up to launch the GetOnline@Home initiative to provide refurbished computers across the UK. They have now joined forces with broadband comparison site Simplifydigital to offer low-cost internet. If customers sign up this month they receive a GBP75.00 discount. For charities, the cost of the refurbished computers is GBP99.00 and laptops GBP149.00.

With so much online now, from paying bills and banking to job applications, connecting with people and getting the very best deals, being online is no longer a nice to have, it is an essential.”
