Cafe Owners Puling the Plug on WiFi

While most coffee shops offer free WiFi, including large chains there is a growing number of independent coffee shops choosing to ditch or limit Internet use. By not offering WiFi, they’re hoping to create more of a community atmosphere where people actually talk to each other instead of silently typing on their computers. Some businesses report that it does take away from the ambiance and vibrancy of a cafe when you have a number of tables or people working on their computer, there’s also a risk to approaching customers seen to be abusing the free WiFi, as they write negative posts about the cafe if they are approached by staff in regards to its use. The nature of the coffee-house is a spot where people can be themselves, do the things they love to do, to connect with others. This trend is now becoming common from Toronto to Vancouver.
