Setting up of Internet (Cyber) Cafe and the cost of it depends on a number of client computers and services you plan to offer to your customers.
To start Internet Cafe business, you will need:
• Internet connection (ADSL, Cable etc.),
• Client computers,
• Server computer that controls the clients
• Networking hardware
In the most cases networking hardware is not very expensive, however everything depends on a type of network. If you plan to have wired network type, switch or router, and networking cables will be necessary. If you plan wireless network you will need to have wireless access point or router and wireless network cards for your client computers. Of course, if required, you can make a combination of wired and wireless network.
For Internet Cafes that offers only Internet access office programs there is no need to buy very expensive computers. However, if you attempt to offer computer gaming, it is largely recommended to buy high-end graphic cards and processors.
