During the current crisis around the global pandemic Covid-19, we are more reliant than ever on the internet for everything - from ordering essential items like food and medication to communicating with everyone - friends, family, doctors, DWP.

Some families simply cannot afford the extra expense. According to Ofcom, in 2017 only 47% of families on low income have home broadband. These people can't stay up to date with government announcements, check their symptoms on NHS111 or see their loved ones' faces.

This petition demands that the UK government provide free internet access during this crisis.
