Patna: Patna railway station tops the chart in terms of internet search using the available free Wi-Fi service, but the maximum searches are for porn sites.

According to a report, a railway official said on Monday that “More than any other railway station in the country, where free Wi-Fi service was launched, the Patna railway station is on the top in the country for using internet search, particularly serach for porn sites.”

He said this startling fact was brought to light by examining records of use of data by users.

Patna station, under Danapur Division of East Central Railway, is the first station in Bihar to have free Wi-Fi facility. Over 200 trains pass daily through this station, making it one of the busiest ones in the country.

Officials of RailTel, a mini-Ratna public sector undertaking, said Youtube and Wikipedia are the most searched items. But porn is searched and downloaded by users on a large scale, they added.

Bollywood, Hollywood films and apps are also popular among internet users at Patna station.

RailTel is providing 1 gigabite Wi-Fi at the Patna railway station but planning to increase to 10 gigabites due to slow speed of internet and increasing demand for use, mostly by the youth.

After Patna, Jaipur railway station is second to use internet search, followed by Bengaluru and New Delhi. Free Wi-Fi facility was launched Visakhapatnam station in Andhra Pradesh and Ranchi in Jharkhand apart from Patna last month.

23 stations in India now have free Wi-Fi. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said that the government plans to introduce the service at 400 railway stations in the country in the next three years, including at 100 stations by the end of this year, in collaboration with Google India.

The internet service has been provided under ‘Railwire’, the retail broadband distribution model of Railtel, and Mumbai Central station in Mumbai was the first in the country to get it.
