TalkTalk, a prominent fixed-line broadband provider operating in the United Kingdom, has launched a new award scheme that stands to celebrate the concept of digital inclusion across the United Kingdom.

 Among the distinguished guests that attended the Digital Heroes Awards function conducted by the popular broadband providing firm that is owned by the mobile phone giant of the country, Carphone Warehouse, was Ben Bradshaw, the Culture Secretary of the United Kingdom.


It is also quite an encouraging news for the UK digital segment that Gill Farrington, of Swadlincote, who has emerged as the overall national champion, has been named the Digital Hero of the United Kingdom for the year 2009, by the authority.


Farrington's eligibility for the accolades is that she has been toiling for the previous five years to conduct classes on the IT in local schools where pupils of the schools educated older people in the localities about internet and broadband services.


According to TalkTalk's chief executive officer, Charles Dunstone's explanation given on the new scheme, it helped older generations to catch up fast with technology and speed, to be felt included digitally. He added that nonetheless, something that carried even more value was the fact that the project helped generations to understand one another in a better way.
