Netopia’s branches are all equipped with up-to-date computer workstations and have a standard image and service level. Among its key advantages over its competition (outside of size and spread) are per-minute billing capability; fast and reliable broadband connection; strong technical support per branch; and continuing expansion of products and services. Its History Netopia was founded by two computer enthusiasts in 1996. It began as a private gaming room where friends could pit their eye-hand coordination skills against each other. When the original Katipunan branch opened its doors to the public in January 1997, long queues formed, and soon a loyal customer base grew. By sheer word of mouth, Netopia effortlessly attracted a new wave of faithful clients. Sealing Netopia's success is its commitment to bringing in the latest Internet-related technology. Its Name Netopia \ net-öpëa \ comes from the root words network (an interconnected system of computers) and utopia (a place or state of ideal perfection). An ideal place for computer networks, a Digital Paradise---Netopia.
