Cyber Cafe’s: Great Demand Little Supply

Out of 72% of India's rural population only 2% has access to the internet. For Community correspondents like Rohini, who need to access the internet on a regular basis, things continue to be difficult. Whenever she needs to use the net, she travels from Valhe to the neighbouring town of Jejuri, where there is a cyber café.

"Apart from the money I waste every time I have to go, I also waste a lot of time. There are queues to be dealt with, power cuts and very slow internet. One usually needs to dedicate a day. I do hope that my village gets a café soon," she says.

This video is a part of a series made in collaboration with Centre for Internet and Society, Bangalore documenting access to Internet across India.
