I think cyber cafe owners need to get creative by acknowledging that mobile phones and computers offer different experiences. Below are some of the ways I think internet cafes can evolve to get more clients:
They should offer bigger screens and faster computers; peripheral devices such as headsets, control pads, pens; free virus scans; and the latest games.
Basically, if one has a space with 20 or more computers, there are many improvements that can be made to save the business.
