Many civil servants don't have internet access at work, GDS finds

Charlotte Jee | May 5, 2014
"Significant numbers of civil servants in major departments still don't have access to the internet and social media at work", according to the Government Digital Service (GDS).

As part of the trial, the GDS also provided users with lightweight laptops and tablets, Evernote, Libre Office, a lightweight secure layer, device management, portable 4g WiFi and printers.

Rensburg said that some of the users were "extremely reluctant to return any of the equipment" when the trial ended earlier this year.

He added: "Some of the clearest evidence of the difference the technology made came when we asked for the kit back - without exception, every team on the trial asked to keep the equipment beyond the trial end date."
