Increased Data Allowance
Increased Data Allowance for those in need
the government, alongside many of the mobile operators, have introduced a scheme which temporarily increases data allowances for mobile phone users on certain networks. This is so that children and young people can access remote education if their face-to-face education is disrupted.
we are able to request mobile data increases for young people who meet all 3 of these criteria:
- do not have fixed broadband at home
- cannot afford additional data for their devices
- are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education
For more information about this scheme, please visit: https://get-help-with-tech.education.gov.uk/about-increasing-mobile-data
If you believe you are eligible to have increased data, please fill in the form below and we will make the application on your behalf.
You will receive a text from your mobile provider if your application has been successful. Once received, you will find many useful videos on YouTube showing you how to tether you mobile phone to a laptop or similar device.
