A new website has just been launched to help people get the most out of the internet.
The new website is part of Wiltshire Council’s ‘Wiltshire Online’ programme. This initiative aims to improve broadband provision across the county. As the site develops, it will also signpost adult learning opportunities across Wiltshire to help all residents become confident users of technology.
The Wiltshire Online website provides a one-stop-shop for anyone who is looking for more information about getting online.
It showcases recent technology news and provides useful links and tools for both individuals and businesses.
Wiltshire Online also has a broadband speed checker which can be used to find out people’s current home or office broadband speed.
Wiltshire Council’s Conservative deputy leader, Cllr John Thomson, said:
This new website is another addition to our drive to help people and businesses get more out of the internet. We have invested £16m in this area which is integral to reducing social isolation, helping families save money, bringing rural communities together and helping people learn new skills. We also understand just how important the resource is for local businesses. I hope people take a look at Wiltshire Online and see just how much the internet can help them.
At Calne Community Hub, volunteers have been helping local residents get online. A case study of their work is available on the Wiltshire Online website.
The Wiltshire Online website is now live to use.
Anyone without internet access who wants to find out more can contact the Wiltshire Online team on 01225 793349. Alternatively, free internet access is available in all Wiltshire libraries.
