London mayor Ken Livingstone has said that public internet kiosks are providing a lifeline to victims of domestic violence.
Research has shown that providing the terminals, known as i-plus points, in public places has given victims the chance to report domestic attacks with the assurance of anonymity.
The Greater London Authority (GLA) launched the online channel providing advice and helpline information as part of its strategy to combat domestic violence.
Livingstone said he was pleased by the scheme's success but that he wanted more publicity for the kiosks.
"It is proving to be an invaluable resource but I want more people to know that it's there," he said.
More than 5,000 women have sought advice and information since the scheme was launched and nearly 200 women are using the channel daily.
There are currently about 100 i-plus points in towns and cities across the UK.
Usage for the domestic violence channel is highest at weekends when women may be out shopping or meeting friends.
