    why no Dell gx760 and Dell gx780 on the Internet cafe business plan?

    • admin says:

      The plan is based on Dell GX620… if you’re interested in using 760 or 780 you can just replace the price of the GX620 for the price of the computer model you’re interested in.

    Hopefully you may help me how can i manage my internet cafe being opend soon.
    Can you tell me the procedure and what i have to do to open it?
    waitng for response!

  17. miki says:

    This is great. Much respect for what you guys are trying to do here.
    I have got a question though !
    If connection is setup using this multipoint device, how fast is it for using it in cafes ?
    Because people usually complain about internet speed and i am assuming sharing one dell server among 4 or 5 stations would make it too slow ? Worse for VoIps like skype .
    Would you please elaborate ?

    • admin says:

      Yes, of course sharing any resources does cause lesser (slower) individual access. Read here
      The best thing to do to ensure a good experience for all users is to have the maximum possible Internet connection speed so that even if there are more users there will be plenty of bandwidth left over everyone else.
      Hope this clarifies the issue.

  18. miki says:

    ..Just wow ! Thank you for the quick response !
    I am not sure about the max interent speed connection available in ethiopia these days.
    Are there ranges of ineternet services available (i mean based on speed) in addis ? If there is, would the cost of the ” maxmium internet speed ” be much diffrent from what is mentioned in your plan. I hope i am not bothering too much by asking details.
    Just wanted to make suer i got the plan right before i pass it on to someone !
    Many thanks !

    • admin says:

      Well, the speed considered in the plan is EV-DO speed (supposedly 3.1Mbps but in reality around 500Kbps). However, ADSL, if available, is a much better option. Here are the details from Ethio Telecom’s site.
      Most Internet cafe’s here in Addis either go for the 1Mbps or 2Mbps ADSL connection, but availability depends on location as it is a wired service, not wireless.

  19. Cheze says:

    Wow it is a good idea and I appreciate your business plan. I hope it is very helpful for a wise people.

  20. Ani says:

  23. abel says:

    it is nice plan… i like it!!!!!

  24. Getachew says:

    Pc-station supports only GX620? I want to use optiplex 780?

    • admin says:

      PC-Station works on any computer other than Dell Optiplex 745 and 755.
      So yes, you can use Optiplex 760, 780, 790 or any other models with the exception of the above mentioned two models.

    Thumbs up for ur work! It’s really a gift for a person who wants to have internet cafe. I’m one of them but I can’t download the plan. How can I get it pls?

  27. getnet says:

    for open intenet cafe with 10 pc’s how much pci card and pc station required?

    • admin says:

      One PC-Station set is composed of 1 PCI card and three terminals, which means it will enable you to add 3 additional users (monitors) to your main computer.
      You can add a second PC-Station set on that same computer and have 6 additional users (or a total of 7 with the main computer). That is the limit for a single computer.
      So, to have 10 users, you will need two computers and 3 PC-Station sets bringing the total to 11

    • admin says:

      We assume that the problem is Windows 7. Since iTimer was designed to work on Windows XP, we can not guarantee its proper functioning on Windows 7.

  30. Bini says:

    Hello Admin, how u doing? I’m back again. As per ur cooperative recommendation on z business plan I have talked to Addis Credit and Saving Institution for possible loan options. But they told me they only offer loans for those who are already in business at least for 6 months not for start-up businesses. Can u suggest me any better approach? Thanx and I’m waiting!

    • admin says:

      It’s unfortunate that they were not able to provide you with the loan. Did they recently change their policy? We know for a fact that they used to provide loans for start up businesses.
      If anyone else has more information about this, please do post here!

  34. Addisalem says:

    This business was on my mind… I have asked my friend to tell me about internet cafe… he told me your site address… wow it really supports! But i have a doubt about the business profitability using PC-station, because most of internet cafe customers need to use skype and the PC station does not support it unless they use the main PC. So what is your comment about this..?

    • admin says:

      Well, as the terminals do not have a USB port, you can not plug in a web cam and thus can not use Skype… however like you said, you can use it on the main PC. It is also unlikely that all users will want to use Skype at the same time, so if you have two or three stand alone computers then you can accommodate the customers that want to use Skype on those and the rest can use the stations.

  35. Habte says:

    I want to start small business with limited financial capacity what you recommend me, thank am waiting your response with professional reason.

    • admin says:

      Well, these days starting a business has become a complicated and expensive affair. Using our latest offering (KelalWiFi.com), which is a WiFi controlling and billing software, you can start a WiFi internet service offering business (this would work especially well in a residential areal where the users can access your service from the comfort of their homes).
      All you’d need is a location to hand up your wireless router, wireless router(s) and a broadband internet connection.

  48. Ephrem Bekele says:

  53. Yalew says:

    Realy I like your product and service,having this i need to use yout pc statio system.But may question is that is pc station compatible with window 7,8?

  54. saba says:

    The ADSL connection that you mentioned in the business plan is I guess 1mbps but is the price correct. I checked the ethio telecom website and its around 2000 birr. And I was thinking how much will the 4mbps or 6mbps will cost me.
