Croydon: High Speed Access internet cafe near West Croydon station



Latitude: N51:22:43 (51.378522)
Longitude: W0:06:11 (-0.102941)

The High Speed Access Internet Cafe is just a couple of doors along at

170 North End,

when you turn left out of the main exit from the West Croydon railway station


The front of the shop sells music CDs etc. with a few secluded PCs well out of public view in the back, however with plenty of CCTV and web cameras.

A couple of doors south is the Maplin Electronics store and the Forbidden Planet sci-fi and comics store is across the main road from that.

Further north up the London Road, and especially south down the pedestrianised North End are several mobile phone unlocking / second hand mobile phone concessions counters / stalls within other shops (as well as multiple official mobile phone shops)

Zone One - dystopian underground brazilian cyber cafe


The Tottenham Court Road Tube Station re-development has also now destroyed this cyber café



Directly under the Centre Point building, in the dingy, dirty, dystopian underground tunnel, leading from Tottenham Court Road Tube Station, which used to be full of rough sleepers, there, is a Brazilian Cyber Café called Zone One.

This appears to have a decent selection of Brazilian cakes and coffee, and offers Internet access, although the BT BusinessHub Internet WiFi VoIP router in the window makes one suspect that it might be relatively unsophisticated technically. - have they changed the default passwords on the web administration page ?
(oops ! - no they have not)

Will your credit card details, if your are foolish enough to type them in here online, end up being rinsed by a Brasilian organised crime gang ?
