[Air-l] Internet Cafes in Airports

I too have done a fair bit of traveling in the past year or two and have
noticed a lack of Internet Access in airports. I have never seen an Internet
Cafe in an airport but several I have been to have had some sort of Internet
access. 

Specifically, Salt Lake City Utah has little rooms you can rent with
computers and Internet access. Several airports I have been in have had
Internet kiosks. I think Chicago is one airport with this system.

All of these require a credit card to use which can be a drawback. I would
also think that the coffee shop atmosphere of a cafe would be a welcome
addition to the process of communicating.

Ulla, can I invest?

Subject: [Air-l] internet cafes


 
In the last three months, I've traveled a bit. I've been at the following
airports: Kansas City, Minneapolis, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Seattle, Newark,
Frankfurt (Germany), Cologne (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), and
Stavanger (Norway). I'm also familiar with airports in major cities such as
Munich, Brussels, London, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Sydney, and
Auckland.

And yet, at all these airports, one thing is missing.

How come I can't remember seeing any Internet Cafes in any of these
airports?
