UK consumers now have the opportunity to take advantage of cheap PCs and broadband services through the new Go ON UK scheme.

Launched in a bid to encourage more people to use the internet, the initiative enables customers to buy refurbished PCs and a TalkTalk internet connection from just £159, reports the Telegraph.

Users will be given a 40GB monthly download allowance, a free wireless broadband router and unlimited evening and weekend calls to UK landlines for just £5 a month.

Go ON UK partners hope the offer may persuade the elderly, businesses and charities to get online and utilise the web more productively.

Digital Champion Martha Lane Fox - who founded - said the cost of buying and connecting a PC is "a significant barrier" to adoption for many consumers.

"Being able to offer a PC with a year’s broadband for under £160 will be a lifeline for many," she claimed.
