China’s Net cafes to be consolidated

Nearly all of China’s 110,000 Internet cafes will be consolidated under the management of larger mainly state-owned companies in the next three years. The government is concerned about the sudden popularity of such cafes, which are gathering places for online gamers and those seeking Web information outside of official sources, in a country where many still cannot afford PCs or Internet access.

“The spread of illegal content among Internet cafes and their poor operating conditions have been a major problem in China’s Internet industry,” according to an earlier Xinhua report.
