The program is called “everyone.connected” and seeks to “close the divide” between those that have easy access to the Internet and those who do not.
Vodafone is not the only one in this fight. Virgin MediaO2 has also increased the amount of data it donates through its National Databank initiative (in collaboration with Good Things Foundation). Much like Vodafone’s programme, the O2 network provides 20 GB of data per month to those affected by the cost of living crisis, entirely for free. Currently, VM O2 have given away 50,000 SIM cards and 10,000 vouchers to those eligible.
