Queensland Rail is currently trialing a system that allows users to access Wi-Fi on its trains, but it looks as though sites featuring games or game content are actively being blocked.
‘Games’ are currently being classified alongside ‘Criminal Activity’, ‘Hacking’, ‘Intolerance and hate’, ‘Personals and Dating’ and multiple others as content that cannot be viewed using Queensland Rail’s Wi-Fi service.
Speaking to a Queensland Rail representative, banning games is all part of an attempt to keep any content viewed on Wi-Fi “g-rated”.
“With content we have to make sure everything is g-rated,” explained the representative, “even websites like Facebook and Youtube can’t be viewed. Anything that we feel has a lot of unregulated content has to be removed.”
