Internet cafe

An Internet cafe or cybercafe is a place where one can use a computer with internet access for a fee, often per hour or minute; sometimes one can have unmetered access with a pass for a day or month, etc. It may or may not serve as a café also; in South Korea they are called PC bang. Nowadays there are also Wifi-cafes, where a person can connect their notebook or PDA using the cafe's wireless access to the Internet.

They are located world-wide, and most people use them when travelling to access their email account, and keep in touch with family and friends.

The EasyInternetcafé chain discontinued its CD burning services because it was held responsible for copyright violations by clients [1].

There are also internet access points in public places like airport halls, sometimes just for brief use while standing. - List of Internet cafes around the world
