Superhighways successfully applied to the National Databank to manage the distribution of sim cards to Kingston residents.

If you are a charity or a community group delivering services in Kingston upon Thames, you can apply for unlimited data sim cards for you clients, members or communities. 

The key criteria are :

  • recipients need to be 18+ years old
  • living in a low income household


How the project works

  • We are working with local community groups, statutory and health partners to get data to the people who need it most 
  • As a member of a community group or charity, or working for local statutory providers and / or health services, you can refer up to 5 people at one time
  • The different data providers offer different kinds of sim cards
  • When the 6 month period has expired, you can apply for another sim card for the individual you've nominated

Please note residents are unable to apply through Superhighways directly to receive data sims.  They must be referred through a local community group, or a staff member of local statutory providers and / or health services.
