where social housing providers meet to help their residents embrace the web

Results published from highly successful Free WiFi & Digital Inclusion Pilot

One of the UK’s largest digital pilot schemes to help older and vulnerable people get online has been hailed a success, after it helped more than 400 people to access free wifi.

The evaluation results of the Orbit Group and CommunityUK Pilot WiFi project has been published.

The project involved a partnership between CommunityUK, the award nominated Free WiFi and Digital Inclusion Solutions provider and Orbit Housing group to  deploy  a fully managed Free WiFi service to residents, along with a comprehensive Digital Inclusion program across 20 Shared Housing Schemes in the UK.

To-Date, the project has been a complete success with lots of uptake and positive, measurable results and is now to be extended across further schemes.

As you can imagine, we are really proud of this one!
