UPD GO ON UK and TalkTalk Offer £49 PC and Broadband to Low Income People

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 (8:35 am) - Score 14,809

The Go ON UK (RaceOnline 2012) initiative, which is headed up by the country’s Digital Champion, Martha Lane Fox, has joined forces with ISP TalkTalk and software giant Microsoft to offer a special refurbished computer (Windows 7 PC or Laptop) and broadband with phone bundle to low income adults and families from just £49.

TalkTalk claims that the new promotion, which bundles 12 months of the ISPs “Essentials” phone and broadband service (40GB usage allowance, free router, HomeSafe security and unlimited evening + weekend calls to UK landlines etc.), is aimed at the 2.4 million UK adults whom say they still can’t afford to get online at home.

The promotion essentially offers either a reconditioned Windows 7 desktop PC with 12 months broadband for £99 (£49 for those on certain benefits) or a reconditioned Windows 7 laptop with 12 months broadband for £149 (£119 for those on certain benefits).

Qualifing Benefits for the Discount

•Housing Benefit
•Income Support
•Jobseeker’s allowance
•Pension credit
•Disability Living Allowance
•Attendance Allowance / Constant Attendance Allowance
•Incapacity Benefit / Employment and Support Allowance
•Disability element of Working Tax Credit

Further details can be found under the ‘Special Offer’ tab at the Get Online @ Home website.

UPDATE 1:02pm

Just to clarify, the broadband service itself still costs £5 per month for 12 months (though it’s currently still reduced to £3.25 on TalkTalk’s website) but includes a “welcome credit” of up to £50 to cover any set up costs with the above deal. Sorry if this wasn’t clear as GO ON UK’s PR did a poor job of breaking the prices down.
