The UK government has detailed its plan for the "Broadband for All" scheme announced by PM Gordon Brown. Details were provided by Jim Knight, Schools Minister.

Initially there will be a pair of pilot schemes carried out in Suffolk and Oldham starting in February 2009 lasting the entire year. The plan will offer families grants to allow them to buy approved laptop or desktop systems and broadband access.

Friday the 24th of October will be "Get Online Day" around the country where people can visit UK online centers to get advice on what is available to them. Estimates believe that about a million homes in the UK could qualify for help.
