According to a new index in the UK, 11.5 million people are lacking basic digital skills. The index, published by Lloyds Banking Group, is designed to show the level of digital skills of adults in the UK. It showed that, while 1.1 million people developed basic digital skills over the past year, there is still a substantial number of people who do not have skills for basic ICT use, including using the internet. The index also shows that half of those over 65 years of age lack basic digital skills.
