Bridging the digital divide between home and not home

“So the internet’s on, the computer’s on – there’s a way into your computer. It’s got security, so it’s not an open door, but if you do not set it up properly it can be quite a security gap.

Mr Goodwins says once people start using remote access it becomes addictive. “We’re going to start to get good internet bandwidth and infrastructure everywhere we go, because we won’t be able to work without it.

“So if we go to places that don’t have internet infrastructure they’ll suddenly be provided with all the things we’ve got access to, so our own revolution will push the revolution elsewhere. This could be one of the big things that breaks down the digital divide.”
