Internet Cafés Disappear

Internet cafes, once being the communication hub in developing countries, are fast disappearing from our life. The reason is obvious – the rise in smartphones is making the need to go into a café largely redundant.

For example, in Rwanda one Internet café went from 200 daily customers to just 10. India is suffering as well – for instance, some businesses in the southern city of Mysore have opted to sell stationery or sweets instead of Internet access. In the meantime, Internet café owners have to diversify their offerings in order to include flight bookings, mobile phone top-up cards, and accessories for different gadgets. Even cafés in Myanmar, where mobile penetration is very low, are facing the same trend there.

However, more developed countries had seen cafés survive to cater for immersive Internet gaming. At the same time, the number of such cafes in South Korea dropped to 15,800 in 2012 from 19,000 in 2010. As for China, the number of online cafes there dropped 7% to 136,000 in 2012 from 2011.

The above mentioned statistics flies in the face of a 5-year study released by the University of Washington in July, which discovered that Internet users in developing countries still rely on such public venues as cafes and libraries for Internet access even when smartphones are available. The research insisted that one technology won’t replace the other and smartphones are not responsible for the current trend.

No avatar"The research insisted that one technology won’t replace the other and smartphones are not responsible for the current trend" - They are talking rubbish with eyes wide open. New technologies certainly will replace the old ones, otherwise what is meaning of creating new technologies? For example, mobile phone changes the way people make phone calls. Only businesses still use fixed line telephone. Similarly smartphone changes the way people access internet (on the fly).

lovs2build avatarI have to agree.
I live in the Philippines and over the past 3-4 yrs our internet cafes have slowly died.
Cheaper internet access, and more competitive ISP's attributed to this downfall.

zumoku19 avatarYeah I totally agree, I lived in a small city in north eastern part of India and over here most cyber cafes are mostly empty, they are still there because they carry out projects for school or college students or perform data entry work. Man! I remember in the late 90's when we used to wait in line just to get our hands on mirc/yahoo chat back when they were no bots at all

majordik avatarFor example, in Rwanda one Internet café went from 200 daily customers to just 10.

Naw... Could it be?
Allot of people wising up to all the 409 scams coming out of these cafe's?

More likely due to the high hourly cost they charge, access at McD's, Starbucks, etc. for free..

How about an internet bar or titty bar? Hey you'd have people with money and they need access; it would be free as long as kept buying drinks and tipping with dollar bills.. LoL

No avatarInternet Cafés should been only used for mobiles for facebook or skype and other contactable programs or apps like kindle only.

PCS should be forbibben so are pravite deatils do not get saved or stored or stolen from unknown users.

Telcomcorp avatarI stop going to an 24/7 internet cafe in my area because having a laptop and the availability of free wifi via libraries etc is the cheaper more cost effective option.

The continued evolution the electronic - the internet ,personal computers ,computer phones etc will continue to render various industries and sectors obsolete will increasing individual access and capabilities.

Its what I love about technology.

No avatar'Only businesses still use fixed line telephone' Come on '135661' that's nonsense. Internet by 3G/4G access is still far too expensive for most people for anything other than reading their e-mails. The vast majority of streaming/downloading is done through ADSL into the home via 'your fixed line telephone'
