Is Help for Over 75s to pay for broadband needed?

In the last few days Scottish Labour have put forward an idea to create a fund to pay Over 75s tv licences or help cover broadband fees

This basic requirement for all ages to receive broadband has been accentuated during COVID - for children to study, for adults to work and for pensioners to have outside communication with family during times of isolation and lock down.

In August 2020 free TV licences for over 75s was abolished - but is the answer for this problem for the government to pay for these or offer a voucher back to go towards broadband installation?
