Here's some very relevant information for those who work in local authorities with digitally-excluded people or indeed anyone else who might benefit from this great scheme...
Get Online at Home is a digital inclusion initiative from Microsoft and a selection of our authorised refurbisher partners. Our aim with Get Online at Home is to provide an entry-level price point for individuals, charities and housing associations for example to obtain a fully-functioning refurbished desktop or laptop PC together with advice on the best available internet offers from the Ofcom approved Simplifydigital.
We have introduced our new website for Get Online at Home that makes it even simpler to select and purchase your preferred desktop or laptop PC. The term ‘refurbished PC’ simply means primarily an ex-corporate PC that has been professionally reconditioned by one of our authorised refurbisher partners – it is as ‘good as new’ and comes with a standard 90-day warranty that can be upgraded to 12-months for a small additional charge.
Thousands of previously digitally-excluded people have already taken advantage of the Get Online at Home offer and you can read some of their stories here about the difference that being online at home makes to their lives. There are many more people who are still excluded from easy access to the Internet via their own PC in their home. Get Online at Home provides a fully-functioning, internet-ready, secure desktop or laptop PC with prices commencing from £49* for our special offer.
