Interview: Helen Milner CEO, Tinder, on the digital divide in Britain

Interview: Helen Milner CEO, Tinder, on the digital divide in Britain | Public Library Info Lit Champions | Scoop.it
Eleven million people across the UK are struggling to connect to the internet. Not because of problems with hardware, bad connectivity, or even rural broadband challenges, but because they either don’t know how, or are too poor to get online.
Llandrillo Library's insight:

Government public services online

The government is making a big push to become ‘digital by default’ by offering many public services online.

The cost savings from encouraging citizens to transact online rather than by other means speak for themselves. The government has calculated that on average an online service is 20 times cheaper than a phone transaction, 30 times cheaper than by post and 50 times cheaper than face to face.

It is currently halfway through an ambitious two-year project to digitise 25 of the most used government services - from visa applications through to benefit claims - and move them online.

But if 11m people in the UK don’t even have the means or skills to access the internet, this is a huge challenge for a government pushing forward its digital agenda. This is where organisations such as Tinder are stepping in to help.
