Brining the people to the internet

Yahoo launches Internet Cafes. Not in India, in Vietnam. But who knows, it may happen here too - not really required in the urban areas, but in the rural areas.

From SearchEngineJournal.

When you cannot bring the Internet to the people, bring the people to the Internet. Yahoo Vietnam’s Yahoo! powered Internet Cafes are opening around Vietnam’s Hanoi and Ho Chi Mihn City in an effort to bring Internet to people and effectively brand Yahoo services.

Good idea. Like the e-chaupals, Rural Business Hubs it will help get the people to the internet, and hopefully improve the quality of their lives. But the yahoo branding is what I am not convinced about.

But my question is, once you get them to the internet, will they be prevented from searching on Google? :)
