    The internet has become an essential part of life and has many conveniences. If you are on a low income then you might not be able to experience how a laptop can really help you. The government are now giving away laptops for free. Many people ask how to get free laptop from the government and if you are on a low income then you may be eligible for one.

    The first step is to check that you are eligible. Generally the government criteria are for those families who don’t have internet access, have children between the ages of 7 to 14 and have an income of less than £16,000.

    Are you a Low Income Family?
    If you have ticked all the requirements then you should seriously consider visiting the direct government website to submit an application for a grant. Similar initiatives are available in the US too and if you think that you might be eligible it is worth a try applying for the grant.

    Grants Are Available For Low Income Families

    If you are not eligible for a free laptop an internet access then there are many other ways that you can access the internet. Internet cafes are popping up everywhere and for 50pence you can access the internet for half an hour. Some internet cafes have superfast broadband and fibre optic technology and your browsing experience should be really fast.

    Free Laptops For Students, You might be eligible

    Local libraries also provide a facility for accessing the internet. If you have a library membership then you too can start surfing the net. Visit your local library and ask for opening times, ask how many hours you can book for at any given time and then book some slots according to your needs. If you need more time then you can visit other libraries too.

    Nowadays you can also access the internet through your mobile phone. If you don’t have a laptop but have internet access on your phone you can consider hooking it up to some Wi-Fi network that is being provided to the public.

    There are approximately thousands of locations throughout the UK and if you can find one near your home then you can start surfing the web with your phone for free. Phones are becoming as good as laptops and even though you might not be able to run fast software on it you can still get internet access to perform essential tasks such as paying a bill.

    If you do have a laptop but don’t have internet access then again you should find an internet hotspot where you can log on for free. If you want to reduce the cost of your broadband then consider sharing the cost with a neighbor and therefore halving your cost.

    The cost of laptops and internet access are falling all the time. With more and more competition in the market many believe that internet access will eventually become free and you will be able to buy a surfing devise for under $50. Whatever the future holds there are a number of facilities that people can used to get access to the internet so that anyone will experience the benefit it can provide.
