Satyam plans 500 cybercafes by March

Satyam Infoway is busy rolling out a chain of cybercafes to popularise the internet in a nation where the Web craze is running high but personal computer penetration is low.

Satyam, plans to have a network of 500 to 600 cybercafes by next March, up from the 120 now spread over Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai.

Personal computer penetration among India's one billion strong population is more than five million but most of them are still owned by companies and located in offices, figures from the National Association of Software and Service Companies show.

Studies also revealed demand for cybercafes among young people and students seeking privacy, and business travellers wanting to check their E-mail. Satyam now charges subscribers between 25 and 35 rupees (53 to 75 US cents) an hour to access the Net at its cybercafes, which operate under the I-Way brand.
