Plusnet helps get Sheffield residents online
Plusnet sent a team of experts to an event at Sheffield Town Hall designed to help more people get to grips with the internet.

Taking place on Wednesday (October 17th 2012) as part of Get Online Week, the event is part of a national scheme aimed at supporting the eight million UK adults who have never used the web.

Highlighting the benefits of understanding technology, Age UK research revealed 81 per cent of computer-literate older people feel more connected to modern society.

At the event, a group of Plusnet volunteers gave advice on everything from online shopping to keeping in touch with friends and family via email and social networking.

They were joined by model and actress Jennifer Ellison, who has been working with the internet service provider this year to promote the various uses of the web.

"I've picked up some really handy hints from Plusnet's volunteers on how I can get more from the web and it's clear that local people have got a lot out of the event too," commented Ellison.
