Nigerians, like most people living in developing countries depend on cyber cafes for their internet access. This is chiefly because the cost of computers is still too exorbitant for most citizens. Another factor is that the cost of buying and maintaining internet access from telecom companies in Nigeria is still too expensive for most people.
These two factors have made internet cafes very popular among Citizens. Every day thousands of people visit these cyber cafes that dot strategic positions in our towns and cities to make use of internet/IT services.
Popular internet applications for Nigerians include email, chatting, social network sites (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.), research (Google, Bing), job search, internet business (Forex Trading, Freelancing, etc.), Exam registration/result retrieval (WAEC, NECO, JAMB, etc.) and many more.
Despite the huge demand for cyber cafe services in Nigeria, quality of service that these Cyber cafe service providers deliver still leaves a lot to be desired. This is because most users have the false impression that they have no choice. Our advice is that you should visit a number of Cyber cafes before settling for one. Any time you see a new Cyber cafe drop by and see what they have.
This series will provide information for people aspiring to own cyber cafes in the future with information on what they would require to invest in, so as to deliver what we believe is an acceptable quality of service to their customers.
