During the lockdown, smart working and distance learning became more widespread than ever before. This has highlighted the strong need for many families, educational institutions and companies to equip themselves with useful and high-performance electronic devices such as computers and Internet services.
It is no coincidence that the PC Bonus meets this need perfectly.


Who is the Bonus aimed at?

The 500 euro pc tablet bonus is aimed at:

  • families with ISEE (Equivalent Economic Situation Indicator) of less than 20,000 euros and can be used to buy computers, tablets and also to install an Internet connection;
  • families with an ISEE of more than 20,000 euros, who will receive an incentive of 200 euros for the purchase of connectivity services;
  • businesses, which will be able to receive up to 2000 euros for the purchase of connectivity services at least 30 Megabits per second or 1 Gigabit per second. The criteria determining the amount will be company size and number of employees.

The 500 computer bonus will therefore be useful for those wishing to purchase web services and browsing devices. The aim of the Internet bonus is mainly to offer families the possibility of being equipped with PCs, tablets and useful electronic devices, making it possible to connect to the Internet at all times.
Another purpose of the PC and tablet bonus is to support businesses, for which vouchers worth a minimum of 500 euros and a maximum of 2,000 euros will be provided.

In order to obtain the Internet PC Bonus, a few basic requirements must be met:

In addition, with the press release of 15 March 2021 Infratel Italia updated the list of “accredited operators” and the list of “accredited operators with approved offers”.

The period from which it will be possible to benefit from the bonus for the purchase of PCs was established on 1 October in the Gazzetta Ufficiale (Official Journal) and beneficiaries will be able to request it by that date: 1 October 2021.
