Mentions: Cabinas are characterized by their low prices—an average of 15–30 cents (US) per hour—and relatively efficient connectivity [8,11]. The cabinas are the result of thousands of commercial initiatives of small informal entrepreneurs, and they offer other services as needed such as faxing, scanning, printing, photocopying, text editing, CD/DVD-writing, long-distance calls, and videoconferencing; some sell food and drinks (Figure 1). Cabinas are user-friendly and even unskilled users can rent a computer and, in most cases, receive basic assistance in operating computer programs [8]. Some are open 24 hours a day [12], and it is common to find cabinas even in poor urban slums.
