Browsing Centre - Decline of the Empire

Browsing centres, place where people use internet by paying the host a nominal charge. This is quite a decent idea for consumers. This is quite befitting for part time users, as they use only when it is needed. Just spend Rs.15 to Spend an hour online. Even , the internet zones were in peak where users wait outside to get a vacant system.

Now time has changed. ISPs are very lenient in their plans, adapting suitably concentrating all categories of users. Also , the setup is quite instantaneous. This attracted people towards hiring a personal internet connection, some even go for leased line.This decreased the crowd that move to browsing centre to access , as they have their own internet connection running in their home PCs.

What about people dont have PC. Fatal attack. Even ISPs like BSNL started providing PCs for those who hire their connection.

Above picture is taken in a browsing centre , at peak time. 90% systems are vacant.

This picture , where the shop proprietor closing his shop out of business.
Are these ISPs affecting the browsing centre business like what DTH does to Cable TV Operators.

Blurred Vision:

If the Sharpness of the Image goes of, its blurred Vision. The image appears like its is not Clear and details wont be clear enough to analyze what is what. In the worst case, the Shape of the Image goes blurred, even a Cow appear as an ATM Machine

Cloudy Vision:

Cloudy vision means
Consider a glass of water , add a drop of Milk in it.
Then see how it looks.
That is how you would see the world. The whole thing is clear but you would see a Mild Screen.
