Have you ever used an internet cafe? If so what was your experience? What did you like not like? Would you use one if you haven't?

    I worked at one back in the day. Does that count?

    I still use them every now and then when I'm on the road and need to scan or print something.
    Many of them usually have a decent broadband connection when you need to sync your holiday photos and don't want to use mobile broadband.

    I remember them back in the day used to like them
    I don't think there is much around any more or any need for them
    with all the WIFI and BYOD they seem to have stoped

    Internet cafes seem to be vanishing, generally. Where you're most likely to see them now is in low-income areas.
    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

    There are a lot of internet cafes here in our country. I rarely go to internet cafes if I don't want to use my mobile data or if I need to print something.

    The need for these shrinks every day. I read yesterday that the Chicago and New York Library System will start lending out WiFi hotspots.

    My brothers' friend's sister in law owns one; according to her, the warm spirit in the cafe is satisfactory enough; however, until your restaurant gains popularity, profits will be at a flat plateau. She has only 3 pcs (2 macs).

    I wouldn't be able to trust a internet cafe. Browsing, printing from usb, sure. Checking e-mail, I would be having a panic attack till I got it changed at home.

    Perhaps share your experiences with Internet cafes? You posted the initial question and have since not posted to this thread, I am sure others would love to hear back from you regarding your thoughts? Makes the thread more interesting as well!

    How profitable are these things now that the .com boom is over? Would you consider opening one in a low income area?

    Internet cafe? You mean Starbucks, right? The Wi-Fi is great but the coffee is a little expensive.

    I asked you to contribute to the conversation in the above post, perhaps that was not in clear enough English, but the forums are for discussions not your personal research. You have asked only questions in both your posts of this thread. Contribute to the conversation rather than merely fishing for information from our members who generously put forth their time.

    Public libraries tend to fill that role around where I live. Some of them even offer coffee/baked goods..

    There's no profit in them at all at this point. That's why they are pretty much non-existent in the US now whereas they were all over the place in the late 90's and from 2001-2008. Too many restaurants/businesses have free WiFi now due to the proliferation of broadband.
