Internet cafes in Singapore

With free WiFi in many public places and practically every Singaporean wielding an iPhone, internet cafes are quickly becoming a thing of the past in Singapore. Thankfully, if you need to do some impromptu web surfing, printing, or Skyping a few internet cafes survive in all of the city’s central neighbourhoods.

More on Downtown Singapore

Little India is home to the highest concentration of internet cafes and you can hardly walk a block without passing one. The internet cafes on Dunlop Street, also known for its backpacker hostels, have some of the cheapest prices and you’ll pay just S$1 per hour at Star Net Centre or Razias Netcafé. Closer to Mustafa Centre, AJ Internet Cafe is also open 24-hours and charges S$2/hour.

No excuses for not calling your Mum -- they're open around the clock.

On Orchard Road, Cyberia charges S$3 for the first hour but their broadband is fast enough for Skype and LAN games. Cheaper rates can be found at the internet cafes in Lucky Plaza – also known for its authentic Filipino food – like SM Internet Cafe or AJ Internet Centre. The entire ninth floor of Cathay Cineleisure Mall is an e-gaming zone called E2Max and rates to use their state-of-the-art computers start from S$2/hour.

The most conveniently located internet cafe in all of Singapore has to be JCube Cybercafe – you don't even need to leave the Dhoby Ghaut MRT Interchange. Rates start from S$2 per hour and they sell food and drinks.
