Addressing Wi-Fi Misuse at Stations: Addl Inputs

Thanks to the circle members for raising this important matter. Based on your discussion, below are the key solutions that we have compiled. Kindly review them and share any additional and specifc solution inputs you may have. We look forward to your inputs!

Addressing misuse of wifi at railway stations

1. Proper firewalls should be used by station wi-fi teams
2. Software like OpenDNS could be used to prevent access to unauthorised sites
3. The sites flagged by the Ministry of Information & Broadcast should be blocked on the railway station wifis’
4. Downloading should not be allowed through station wifi
5. Like stations in many European countries, wifi should be given free for only the first 15 minutes and then on a chargeable basis
6. A registration process to use the internet, like of the airports should be initiated
7. The PNR number of the passenger should act as the login ID if he wants to access the wifi. This will make his realize that whatever he surfs could be traced back to him
8. As soon as someone opens a non-allowed site, the browser should get locked with a full page notice about the infringement showing up
9. Such phones/phone numbers should also be banned from using station wifi for the next 6 months
10. Access should be restricted to one connection per PNR on the days of travel only. more

All local circle members are writing so many suggestions. But very very slow implementation. Here we have to mention that NDA. Is trying to do something better than corrupted congress people. The main agenda of the so called congress is to add more wealth to their gazanas. more  
Ban social media ( Facebook , what's app. Etc., ) and YouTube at these free WiFi access point. There is no need for these. This will increase the utilization by limiting the band width consuming videos being shared these. more
