hi5 usually means when two people clap their hands together up in the air but in al Hamedia street
it has a whole different meaning..
the hi5 net café has been opened from a year and a half, they kept preparing for the opening
for six months, to bring the line from Damascus ,to get the
place prepared and set up the programs that took 3 weeks until everything was in it's place..
Mousa and Fadi were best friends and they decided to open this place together.
First three months they were the only ones running this place, they didn't see each other because everyone had to
work for 12 hours, they started out with 2 megabytes as an internet speed until they got strong ,then
they started buying everything new from cameras, computers and every single detail so it needed a lot of hard
work to be what it is now ,not to forget that
the hi5 was the shelter for people hiding from the rain and kept them warm.
After that they faced some electricity issues because it used to turn off 3 hours
a day and they had to find a solution
so they decided to buy a Generator they had to pay a lot of money for it.
anyway, one hour of using internet used to cost 35 Syrian pounds
Mousa and Fadi couldn't work on their own any more .staying up late tore them a part so they
kept searching for someone to trust and they found Randy who took the responsibility and helped
Them for 5 months and still..
After a while Mousa and Randy went to Damascus to speed up the line and get it to what it is right
Now as in 2 megabytes an hour..
So what are you waiting for?
if you're sick from your internet connection go to hi5 café net and enjoy the speed!!
