BT claims that more than 99% of homes in the United Kingdom are within reach of a basic broadband connection and yet around 6.4 million people still aren’t online (ONS figures).

If at first you don’t succeed. The Government has launched its new Digital Inclusion Charter, which marks the latest in a long list of attempts to get the 11 million adults in the United Kingdom, specifically those who “lack basic digital skills and capabilities“, to finally go online.

Charity Go ON UK (RaceOnline 2012) has estimated that 16 million people in the UK still don’t have the basic online skills needed to benefit fully from the internet.

Go ON UK (formerly RaceOnline 2012) has today launched a new national campaign (Go ON Gold) that aims to help disabled people get online. Apparently 43% (4 Million) of disabled people in the UK have never surfed the internet, which equates to roughly half of the UK’s total offline population.
