It used to be the divide between rich and poor.

These days we are supposed to feel real sad if some folk don't have access to fast broadband internet. 'My gosh, they can't even watch movies or download mucic' we should cry.

BT invests half a million pounds to help improve access and quality of education in remote and rural areas in China.

BT has today launched a joint initiative with UNICEF which will bring modern technology to schools in poor rural areas of China to improve access to high quality education.

BT is investing 500,000 (RMB5 million) to benefit up to 6,000 students and 1,700 teachers across four provinces - Qinghai, Ningxia, Yunnan and Jiangxi - where there are high-levels of digital exclusion.

The initiative represents the third phase of BT and UNICEF's Inspiring Young Minds programme, a 1.5 million global development partnership designed to bring education, technology and communication skills to children from disadvantaged backgrounds in South Africa, Brazil and China.
