BT Get It Together Award, Winner, 2013

From its base in Devon, Cosmic is a social enterprise that has worked tirelessly to help overcome digital exclusion in the South West for almost 20 years. In that time it has helped many thousands of individuals, organisations and businesses to take advantage of being online – including many years when they piloted a mobile Space Shuttle around the south west to deliver IT training.

Cosmic is now taking a lead in a number of innovative programmes to help individuals, businesses and communities understand how superfast broadband could help them. With their help thousands more people can benefit from better communications, save money and get access to online services.
