BT Business has launched a new shared internet service, designed to help housing associations offer cost-effective connectivity to tenants.

The service can include shared broadband access between residents, in order to reduce monthly rental costs.

BT Business provides housing associations with affordable technology and also offers training and support for tenants.

Each association can choose the best option for their facilities - whether this involves charging on a per-unit basis for broadband or making Wi-Fi available to tenants.

Graham Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer at BT Business, said there are currently 6.4 million adults in the UK that have never used the internet, and 4.1 million of these are in social housing.

"This not only affects their employment prospects and access to education, but also how they gain access to essential services," he stated.

"As a result, it’s crucial that they have access to go online - and that’s why we’re working with housing associations to help ensure those on low incomes or who are unemployed, elderly or disabled have access to the internet."
