The ‘Connecting Communities’ inclusive broadband project is a digital Universal Basic Services (UBS) pilot aimed at tackling digital exclusion in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. In May 2022, the IGP was commissioned to undertake a final evaluation of the project’s second phase.
The project formed part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets’ Digital Inclusion Strategy, and was developed as a cross-sector partnership between the housing association Poplar HARCA, the LETTA Trust, Tower Hamlets Council, the East End Community Foundation (EECF) and internet provider Community Fibre.
