TLDR:

  • One in seven Britons live without internet access.
  • The digital divide is a growing issue that is often ignored by policymakers.

In a documentary by The Guardian, the impact of digital exclusion is highlighted through the stories of individuals who are unable to access online services. The film showcases how essential tasks like doctor appointments, job applications, and personal banking are now predominantly managed online. Despite the UK government’s push towards a digital future, a significant portion of the population is left behind due to lack of internet access. The documentary aims to shed light on the consequences of the expanding digital divide and urges for more attention to be paid to this pressing issue.
