There are a great many internet cafes in the city with the average fee for internet access being about 2 Yuan per hour, however larger cafes (with more than 100 computers) will cost a little more, about 3 Yuan per hour. Areas around universities and colleges are where are the greatest number of internet cafes are located. You can also find internet cafes in some big shopping malls, but these are fairly expensive at between 5-10 Yuan per hour. Usually you cannot enjoy a very fast connection speed in small cafes, therefore large bars are highly recommended for their excellent facilities and comfortable environment.
