cybercafe

A cybercafe is a business which allows people to pay for access to the Internet. Most cybercafes provide computers, snacks, and beverages to their customers.

Another name for a cybercafe is an Internet cafe. Such places often look just like cafes or coffee shops, with the addition of computer terminals. Cybercafes are especially useful for travelers who need a place to check their email or book flights and hotel rooms online. The original cafe of this kind opened in 1988 in South Korea, but the term cybercafe was first used in 1994, when innovator Ivan Pope opened one in London.
