Internet Cafe Datec - visited (12/12/03)

PAPUA New Guinea is keeping up well with the global technology around the world. With the introduction of computers came the establishment of internet cafes which is servicing lots of interested individuals.

In Port Moresby alone the use of these services are becoming more popular with the workforce and many educated young people who want to get hooked up on the net and have a chat with their friends or to be informed of what is happening around the world.

On Friday we paid a visit to one of the net cafe in town - the Datec Internet Cafe inside Datec's building along the Waigani drive.

This is a small comfy and confined area with 10 computers which can cater for about 30 customers a day.

The net was established in 2001 and since then has catered for 20 customers. According to Rose Tale who is incharge of the net cafe, the number of users has gone up from 20 to 30 each day.

Lunch hour is usually the busiest for the cafe and the afternoons when students will have finished from school and want to go through the net.

"On school days student spent a lot of time here going through the net. When they have assignments to do that is when they would really need to use the internet, so a lot of them come her after school," Rose said.

Rose's job is to help surpervise the use of the cafe and make sure everyone gets the info they need.

She started merely as a receptionist in 1994 then worked her way up.

Having never had any prior training on computing Rose has watched and learned only through practical terms.

Experience proved too well for Rose as she moved to work in the training department. Rose did also help train people by preparing manuals for the students which contained intructions on how to use the computers.

She was then asked to move from here and take charge of the internet cafe which she did. She enjoys her job and says the cafe has become a useful tool for those who paid visit.
