Australian telco Optus has launched a campaign that will let its customers donate their mobile data to young people who can’t afford it.

The ‘donate your data’ project will try and help bridge the digital divide for over 1.1 million young people living in poverty in Australia.

The launch partners include charities The Smith Family and the KARI Foundation, who will help Optus give free sim cards to young people. Each card will have unlimited national standard talk and text and 10GB data for use in Australia, with additional data donated by Optus customers.
