How has ICT helped Develop Cyber Caf�'s? The internet is the whole reason that cyber caf�'s even exist if the internet was to be shut down today every cyber caf� in the world would lose a lot of their income an would most probably have to shut up shop. Cyber caf�s are just like normal caf�s they serve refreshments and food and they also let people have access to the internet. This is a great way for people who do not have a computer or internet access to get into the World Wide Web. It is quite easy to find one as there are advertisements everywhere that will catch your eye with interesting things to say about their own cyber caf�, "A cafe that nourishes your mind as well as your body; with tasty SoHo style food and a trip into the digital world of Cyber Space. ...read more.
