Kabul's Cyber Cafe Culture

from the quickly-catching-on dept

Over in Afghanistan, it sounds like interest in the internet is starting to pick up. This article profiles the owner of an internet cafe who first discovered the internet a few weeks before opening the cafe. As you might expect, the fees for using the internet are relatively high for most local residents, but it’s becoming increasingly popular with the younger generation – many of whom had some experience with the internet abroad. As more people are using it, they’re hoping the fees will start to come down over time. Most people are just using it to read up on news, and maybe stay in touch with friends and family abroad. However, some are already encouraging business owners to look into ways they can use the internet to improve their business.
