Get Digital’s new heatmap highlights large areas of digital exclusion across the UK

The Tech Partnership’s new Get Digital Heatmap, published today in association with Lloyds Banking Group, shows that large areas of the UK continue to suffer from high levels of digital exclusion, even though over one million more adults have gained basic digital skills since the heatmap was last published in 2015.

Common causes of digital exclusion are lack of skills or the confidence to use them; lack of access to infrastructure and fast broadband; the cost of devices and fees for broadband subscription and mobile data; and a lack of personal motivation to value the gaining digital skills as relevant and important.
