What is the National Databank?

The National Databank is like a food bank, but for internet connectivity data. Community organisations can apply to access the databank, enabling them to provide free data to people in their communities who need it.

Access free mobile data from the National Databank through a network of Good Things Foundation ‘Digital Inclusion Hubs’.
