History
The Gateway Cyber Cafe started as the Gateway Cyber Connection by Greg in 2000, it was located in the Godards center and had 8 computers.
Early 2004 Neil bought into the company and it was named "The Gateway Cyber Cafe Limited", 10 more computers were added and the location was moved to Devonport Road.
Late 2006 Greg and Neil bought HEC bringing a retail aspect to the business, and a new staff member Brent.
In April 2010 we moved from 26 Devonport Road up to 50 Devonport Road, increasing our computers to 20 with 13 brand new computers and upgrading the OS on all to windows 7 Pro.
At the end of March 2013 Neil left the company and Greg along with his wife Sandra have taken back full control along with the help of our long time staff member Brent.

Security
We take security very seriously here!
Steps we have taken to make your visit a safe one:
  1. ANTIVIRUS - We have the Network edition of AVG and we are also an AVG Authorized Reseller
  2. FILE RESTRICTION - We have the computers locked down so people cannot install whatever they want reducing the risk of people intentionally or unintentionally installing programs such as key loggers, Trojans, etc.
  3. SESSION RESET - After every single user session, our cafe program kills every process not required to run the operating system.
    Not only does this protect the computer and next user, but if the previous user left with webmail, banking, or messenger services running, those programs will be killed forcing the next user to start fresh.
