Plusnet support Go ON Sheffield... Get online!

go_on_1 In spite of being home to Plusnet, statistics are showing that more than a fifth of Sheffielders - around 95,000 people - don't use the internet. Fortunately the wonderful people organising Go ON Sheffield are working to bring the joys of the online world to those who aren't aware, and Plusnet are happy to lend a helping hand where we can. Go ON Sheffield has recruited hundreds of 'digital champions' including a number of Plusnet staff who will be around at several drop-in sessions around the city. Their job will be to show the wealth of different things that can be done on the internet and encourage visitors to try it out, whether gaming, shopping or just staying in touch with people. The whole Go ON Sheffield initiative is being organised by UK online centres and Heeley Development Trust, with backing from Sheffield City Council and ourselves here at Plusnet. It is part of a UK-wide campaign called "Go ON, Give An Hour" encouraging people to use the spare hour they get as the clocks go back on Sunday 30th October to help someone get online or indeed, experience the world of the web for the first time. The campaign runs until Sunday 6th November with drop in centres open all around the city centre. If you fancy your chances at winning a year's free broadband then please drop into one of the sessions or even better, why not encourage someone who's never been online before to come along and win one for themselves? You can find details of venues and opening times in your local area along with a host of games and fun to follow tutorials at http://learn.go-on.co.uk/. There's also videos from new internet users who've been introduced by the Go ON initiative already, if you need some more encouragement. We hope to see you there!
