Advantages: Internet until you don't fall asleep
Disadvantages: Can be slow at times, bright orange
From Stelios, the man that brought you EasyJet, comes easyEverything (formerly easyInternetCafe) - a chain of unmanned (apart from the security guard) internet cafes in the heart of London.
The Good Points:
Firstly, most of the time the internet connection there is fast.
Also, there are plenty of machines, and it's not hard to find a free PC once you've walked in.
It's easy to use, you just walk in, buy a ticket from the machine with a code on, sit down at a computer, type in your bought code, and start using it. You can buy a code for anywhere from 15 minutes up through an hour, 4 hours, or a whole day pass. Depending on how busy the cafe is, a whole day pass could cost you as little as £1.
The Bad Points:
Firstly, because it's part of the "Easy" brand, everything is so orange, it burns your eyes. The walls, the seats, everything. It hurts.
Next, you're not allowed to sleep at the computer. This is where my story comes in. I was in London with a friend, we'd missed the last train home and couldn't afford a hotel. We went into an easyEverything cafe, bought £1 24-hour passes, and sat down at the computers. However, we had to stay awake until the following morning because the guard kept waking us! Oh well. At least there's a coffee machine.
All in all, a good place to use the internet if you need to, but don't expect any plush treatment beyone a hard uncomfortable chair and a bright orange computer!
Summary: Cheap and cheerful internet access in London's centre.
