Pornography accounts for 35% of all searches and downloads in Secunderabad and Vijayawada, said sources in RailTel, which runs the broadband internet service RailWire. RailTel offers free Wi-Fi for the first 30 minutes at railway stations. Beyond that, people can pay to access the internet service. Slow internet bandwidth at stations has been blamed on the misuse of free WiFi even as South Central Railway looks to extend internet services to 588 stations.

“Our gateway data shows that a substantial number of Wi-Fi searches relate to pornographic content. While hundreds of porn websites are inaccessible, VPN and access to some websites that are yet to be blacklisted allow downloading of such content,” a senior RailTel official told TOI.

“On an average, a user consumes around 350 MB in about 30-minute data session. Around 90% of that 350 MB data consumption comes from porn sites amongst most unique users,” the official added. Secunderabad, in Telangana, tops the list in SCR for maximum data consumption besides taking the lead in maximum porn downloads. Across the 1,600-plus stations in India, it ranks number four in data consumption.
