Mark.JUK writes: The UK government has confirmed plans for a 2011 rollout of its £300m 'Broadband for All' scheme, which was first revealed in September 2008. The project will give a grant of 500GBP to children from 270,000 low income families (earning less than 16,040GBP per year), allowing them to select an approved computer. This will also include a free 12 month broadband Internet access subscription. The scheme will initially be offered to children aged between 7 and 13.
