Patna railway station has landed in a controversy after a shocking news came into the fore on Monday that it tops the chart in terms of internet search using the free Wi-Fi service, however, the maximum searches were for porn sites, a railway official has said. According to an IANS report, “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 search for porn sites,” an official of RailTel, a mini-Ratna public sector undertaking (PSU), said. “It was revealed from our records of use of data by users,” the official said.

Notably, Patna station, under Danapur Division of East Central Railway, is the first station in Bihar to have free Wi-Fi facility. This railway station is one of the crowded as well as the oldest one with more than 200 trains passing through it daily.

According to RailTel officials, people are using free Wi-Fi for Youtube at Patna, followed by Wikipedia. “More than anything, porn sites have been watched and downloaded by the people at Patna railway station.” Some people have been using free Wi-Fi to download apps, and Bollywood and Hollywood films also.

After Patna, Jaipur railway station is second to use internet search, followed by Bengaluru and New Delhi.

At present, 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 in view of more use of it by the passengers as well as youths, who regularly spend hours to enjoy free internet. Free Wi-Fi service was launched last month at Patna, along with three more railway stations, across India. These stations are Patna in Bihar, Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh and Ranchi in Jharkhand.

Mumbai Central was the first railway station in the country to enjoy free Wi-Fi facility. Last year, Google India and Indian Railways joined hands to introduce high-speed Wi-Fi network at 400 stations in the country.
