UK has high levels of IT illiteracy

UK has high levels of IT illiteracyNews brought to you by Skint Tariffs, providers of cheap broadband deals.

As broadband speeds increase and new online services are announced, a recent survey has revealed that 42 per cent of people in the UK consider themselves computer illiterate.

The report by BT Home IT Support, entitled the IT Literacy report, revealed many people had low levels of confidence in handling the technology at their fingertips.

Nearly three quarters of women said that they felt IT illiterate, while 55 per cent of men responded to feeling the same way.

Some 46 per cent of women reported getting so "digitally frustrated" that they wanted to scream, while frustration at the keyboard caused 30 per cent of men to want to shout.

Taza Mohammedbhai, head of home IT support at BT, said: "Given the importance of technology in both work and play, it's surprising that so many people lack confidence in their skills.

"It looks like Britain could be suffering from a serious case of low self-esteem when it comes to their digital lifestyle. While the research shows that low IT self-esteem affects both sexes, men clearly perceive themselves to be the superior sex when it comes to IT literacy."
