    These used to be real popular in my neck of the woods a few years ago. Now most cafes and restaurants offer wi-fi connection (and the cost of laptops allows for many to afford them). In addition, consider that most cell phones give you access to the net. <p>For all these reasons I think that it is not a hot idea anymore.
     
  3. If he is still in the P.I. it may be a good idea or a bad idea.

    I used to live near Manilla.

    Consider his location similar to urban Detroit.

    Good and bad neighborhoods are blocks apart.

    One block may be a secure community, the next block may be a galvanized tin squatters camp.

    Police and crime issues may prevent this from being a fruitful venture depending on your location and willingness to fight for it or pay the "comfort tax".

    You are right. I had not considered his location when I posted my reply. In all honesty, it wasn't until you pointed it out the 2nd time that I finally noticed that the OPs location is in the Phillipines. <p>I know that these Internet Cafes have had more popularity in Asian and Eastern European countries than what they ever had in the US. So I should not try to make an assumption as to how good of an idea it may be for the OP. <P>Again, thanks for pointing out his location.
