EE helped 1,200 Brits to get online for the first time this week, on the first National Techy Tea Party Day.

The broadband provider hosted over 5,000 people at EE stores, contact centres, offices and partner venues across the UK on Tuesday September 9th.

Working alongside Age UK, 2,000 EE staff members hosted events to demonstrate the benefits of getting online with a broadband connection.

An estimated six million Brits have still never used the internet - although this figure is slightly lower today following EE's digital participation sessions.

Attendees received advice on getting to grips with everyday technology, such as setting up Facebook profiles, email and Skype accounts, and overcoming issues with mobile solutions such as tablets.

Actress June Whitfield, an ambassador for Age UK, described the EE National Techy Tea Party Day as a "wonderful" event.

"It was great to see so many people getting to grips with modern technology," she stated.

"I know that mastering today’s gadgets and the internet isn’t always plain sailing, but it’s definitely worth trying."

Olaf Swantee, Chief Executive at EE, said he was "very proud" of the EE store staff who used their expert knowledge to help those most in need to learn essential digital skills.

"Introducing people to the great benefits of everyday technology is something we are passionate about," he claimed.
