The Internet

Internet cafes (cybercafes) have become very popular and can be found in major cities and towns alike. Due to the popularity of these cafes, the price for internet service has decreased and is now one of the least expensive telecommunications services. At the cafes, online services are usually charged per half an hour, but some places charge only for the time used. In the cities, it is possible to purchase soda and snacks at the cafes. In smaller towns, cybercafes can often be more like computer labs, where all that is available is the use of a computer at a lower hourly rate. Cybercafes are generally open until eight or nine in the evening.
