Most Brits use internet for local community involvement

Thursday 16 June 2016 | 15:10 CET | News
More than 80 percent of Brits use the internet to get involved in their local community and access to information and services such as playgroups, social activities and other amenities, according to new research from BT. This is despite almost half (47%) feeling that community spirit is lacking in their local area. In addition, 70 percent of people use the internet to access local businesses and services. The study also shows that more than 1 in 10 (12%) of people across the UK use free Wi-Fi outside of their home as a way of getting out of the house and into the neighbourhood.
