From 1996 the internet became a more obvious presence in New Zealand life and within a few years many people were regularly accessing it. One sign of this was the spread of internet cafés, where people could send email and surf the web. Cyber Cafe was Upper Hutt's first internet café and opened in June 1999. Shown here on the morning it opened are Ron Hancox, Martin Durham (the manager), and Stephanie Bell.
