O2 UK starts national campaign highlighting the digital divide

Wednesday 3 March 2021 | 15:49 CET | News
O2 UK has announced a national campaign aimed at highlighting the UK's digital divide. The operator noted that 7 million people are still unable to access a web-connected device. To show what this means in practice, O2 said a series of online and social media "takeover" will go live from 3 March, showing the disadvantage these people are experiencing. The campaign will run until 24 March.
