Orange Spain said it's teaming up with charity Aldeas Infantiles SOS to launch 'Gigas Solidarios', an initiative that will see the operator offer free internet access for 12 months to families with children under the age of 18 that find themselves in a vulnerable economic situation. The chosen families will be provided with a 4G Wi-Fi router and 50GB a month of data at 4G-plus speeds as well as a Lenovo tablet and keyboard. The company said the first 500 families to receive the aid will be selected next month, with another 500 added before the end of the school year.
