Blackpool is one of the UK’s least connected towns, according to the Keep Me Posted campaign and research from the Office for National Statistics.
The campaign, which fights for consumers’ rights to receive paper bills and statements from their banks, utility companies and telecoms providers, found that a number of UK towns and cities have significantly lower than average internet use. Nearly a third (31 per cent) of Blackpool’s population have either never used the internet or used it more than three months ago.
Other places in the UK where regular internet use is still significantly lower than the national average (13.5 per cent) include Belfast (23.5 per cent) and Liverpool (19.8 per cent).
