National Databank: Free SIMs for low-income households at Arbury Court and Barnwell Road libraries
“Cambridgeshire Libraries have joined Good Things Foundation’s National Databank and are now launching this offer at Arbury Court, Barnwell Road, Cambourne, Ely, Huntingdon, March and St Neots libraries. This is in addition to Bar Hill, Cambridge Central, St Ives and Wisbech, where we piloted the Databank earlier this year.
The National Databank makes free data (via a SIM card or data voucher) available to anyone over the age of 18 from a low-income household. Recipients will self-declare as eligible, and the support is available for a maximum period of 12 months. The data can be used with any SIM-enabled device.
The offer includes:
O2: 25GB of data and unlimited calls and texts (UK only); refreshes every month. (Increased to 50GB per month until the end of January 2024)
Vodafone: 40GB of data and unlimited calls and texts (UK only); refreshes every month.
Three: 24GB of data in total. No calls or texts provided; not refreshed.
Cambridgeshire Libraries are working with partners to identify and spread the word to those who would most benefit from this offer. All recipients have to do is visit one of the participating libraries in person and speak to a member of staff.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thank you very much for helping us reach those who’d benefit from this support.’’
