Research from the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), part of the University of Oxford, has revealed a rapid increase in use of the internet for commercial, banking and entertainment purposes. The number of people paying bills online, watching films and TV series’ and streaming music via the internet has increased significantly since 2013. However, there is a growing divide in experience and perception between those who use the internet and those who do not, which could lead to non-users potentially missing out on access to key services, widening the “digital divide”.
The OxIS 2019 was launched on September 9, 2019 at BT Centre, London. The event featured remarks from Matt Warman MP, Minister for Digital and Broadband, representatives from BT, Google, and Ofcom, and senior scholars from the Oxford Internet Institute.
The 2019 OxIS was funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), BT, and Google.
