Internet and smartphone made easy. On the spot. For everyone.
Digitization is everywhere in our everyday lives. We use the Internet, smartphones and computers in many areas. For example, to write with our friends, do banking transactions or buy tickets. Without knowledge in these areas, it is hard to use all these things.
Therefore, the government is supporting 30 municipalities to set up information desks. At these desks, people who have little or no experience with the internet and smartphones can get help. The advisors help with questions about the Internet, smartphone or tablet.
The project started in April 2023 and lasts 12 months. An extension for another year is possible.
Here are some examples of how the information desks can help:
- They help you set up an email address.
- They show you how to search the internet.
- They help you use a smartphone or tablet.
- They explain how to do online banking.
- They help you sign up for online services.
Information desks are free and open to everyone. You can visit them if you have questions about the internet, smartphone or tablet.
