IS there any licence for setting up NET CAfe, NEtcable or BOth.
There is a licence. for cable service operator. which cost you a 1-5 lacs....issued by PTA...
but its not for desi cable net.
its for cable broadband operators, tv cable operators, dsl operators, and isp operators...etc etc....
So dont worry about that...go a head and best of luck...
you may make a P-IV Server few switches and some Cable thats all. It depends upon how much you wanted to invest into the business. An average Cafe Setup with 6 to 7 workstations may cost not more than Rs. 25000/-.
Only One Switch is Enough if you are talking about 6-7 computers...
and cost is not just for pcs...
he must have to invest for location, cabins, office stationary, office furniture...etc etc
according to my opinion, if you want a high fy cafe to run in compedition at defence type area...
then you must have to invest approx. 1-2 lacs on all of these (remember! shop rent and advance is not included)
you have to pay for your marketing. otherwise you have to close your cafe within 6 months (hopefully not)
you have to became friend of the linemen of the area so everytime your line goes under heavy noise or producing humming, it will get you out. the only way for the friendship is sweets (mithayee)
you have to pay your utility bills and bandwidth charges atleast 3 months from your very own sweet pocket.
Survey the area where u are planning to deploy internet cafe.
ask to the other cafe person about his setup (dont tell him about your planning otherwise he will not going to tell you even a single word truely...)
Feel free to Ask More!
