Low-cost computers are to be offered as part of a government scheme to encourage millions of people in the UK to get online for the first time.
Prices will start at £98 for a refurbished PC, with subsidised net connections available for £9 a month.
The 12-month trial is part of the Race Online 2012 scheme, which aims to reach out to the 9.2 million adults in the UK who are currently offline.
