About Tuhel Miah

Hi, thanks for stopping by, My name is Tuhel Miah, I am really passionate about business and the opportunities offered by the Internet. It seems only not so long ago that it was impossible to compete with the large multinationals or even contemplate going global as a small business.

Planet Connect Internet CyberCafe and Consultancy

My Internet business experience includes setting up the first Internet Cybercafe (Planet Connect) in Leeds back in 1995, which included working in partnership with Leeds City Council to launch the 24 hour City initiative. The then leader of Leeds City Council Councillor John Tricket (now an MP for South Elmsall) and other dignitaries came to the official opening and launch of the Cybercafe, with live broadcast on BBC1’s 1 o’clock news, and write ups in Yorkshire Post Newspaper.

I developed the initial idea, introduced the business to a friend who came on board along with several other investors. The business employed several members of staff including web designers, sales and marketing people along with staff to run the cafe.

Another first was the Cybercafe in Bradford, which was officially, opened by HRH the Prince of Wales. This was well received with Rave Reviews in major local and national papers, TV and Radio interviews. The cybercafe was a success however the business was unable to expand due the location and the premises. Working with various local companies, the council, housing association, and charities the business provided a needed local service, however with the launch of FreeServe ISP and free dialup connections nationwide marked the end of cybercafe’s and it was time to move on.
