“ Home Access is a government drive which will help low-income families to get access to a computer and the internet to get online at home.

If you are a low income family in receipt of certain benefits you could qualify for a grant to buy a computer and/or a minimum of one years’ internet access. The programme is aimed at those that need it most and targets families that do not have access to a computer or the internet at home.

Depending on what you need, the grant allows eligible applicants to buy one of the following packages:

1. Full package (a computer, one year's internet access, service and support)
2. A computer with service and support only
3. One year's internet access only “

Anyone had any experience of this ?

Now OK I accept ‘HomeAccess’ is just that but the machines do appear to be older base models and better deals could be had direct.

I think the clue is the word grant. although the gvt is giving grants it would be reasonable to expect the systems are not going to be earth shattering, but give basic access to computers to those who otherwise would be able use technology.
