Tottenham Court Road - EasyInternetCafe

| | Comments (1)

On the western side of the Tottenham Court Road, between Hanway Street and Stephen Street at 9-16 Tottenham Court Road, is the familiar orange and white branded Easy Internet Café with about 470 internet PCs.

They are open very late and have a prepaid voucher machine system to buy internet connection time. You are less likely to have your email or blog publishing or internet banking authentication credentials snarfed by password sniffers etc. from viruses or spyware, as each machine has its software rebuilt from central server images after each customer's session.


Next door, is another useful Sainsbury's supermarket for the purchase of food and drink (including alcohol at farless than the pub and bar prices)

N.B. it is illegal to openly drink alcohol in the street in this central area of London, either in the City of Westminster or the Borough of Camden - you can have your drinks confiscated by the Police or the Police Community Support Officers (who go around in pairs) and face a fine etc.

Visited this cafe in April 2008; first trip, only one vending machine worked, second, all were broken. As were most of the workstations. The place is unmanned, and didn't feel all that safe. There's a cheaper internet cafe just a bit south and across the street. It's busier, cleaner, and all the computers work. Avoid this dump.
