cybercafe

A cybercafe is a cafe, coffee or espresso shop, or similar food and/or beverage-serving place that has a number of personal computers connected to the Internet and available for use by customers. Some cybercafes allow customers to use the computers at no charge; others charge by the hour or fraction of an hour. In September, 1997, there were estimated to be more than 1,000 cybercafes internationally. By 2001, there were perhaps tens of thousands, with at least one in almost every small community in many countries. In cities such as Beijing, China; Kathmandu, Nepal; and Florence, Italy, there are now chains of cybercafes.

If you travel and need access to the Internet, a cybercafe might be one solution. Call ahead and find out location and hours. If possible, reserve a computer at a certain time.
