Listen: money-saving tips from Mrs MummyPenny

The cost-of-living crisis is threatening to put a million working families on the wrong side of the digital divide in the next three months.

According to new research commissioned by Vodafone and forecasts by Development Economics, families stand to lose £286 per month (£3,432 per year) without access to the best prices and deals online.

The YouGov research of over 2,000 UK adults revealed the extent people rely on connectivity to save money.

In response, Vodafone has launched the most affordable social broadband tariff on the market at £12 per month. Vodafone Essentials Broadband is not only available to people on Job Seekers Allowance and Universal Credit, but also those on Employment and Support Allowance, Disability Allowance or Personal Independence Payment.

Aston spoke to finance expert Lynn Beattie a.k.a Mrs MummyPenny.
