    • I do get that fibre to the home is the ideal situation, I would sign up in a heart beat - but in most ( most referring to geographic area, not population density ) of North America that is not likely to be available at anytime in the near future, or one's probable lifetime 😕.

      One downside to a physical connection is that you can't take it with you when you go to Florida to your own condo, so you might need to pay for multiple connections for broadband.

      I have friends who use a cellular wireless connection so that whether they are at home, or travelling, or in a hotel on the road, they always use their own cellular wireless broadband connections. Seems to work for them, and they get only one bill.

      From a security standpoint I tend to think my cellular connection is more secure than the unsecured open WiFI network in a hotel too. I may not be correct about this, but I think I am, anyway 😬

      My physical connection is a copper cable, not fibre - but the best available in my neighborhood. And the only physical broadband available, since my cable vendor has a municipal sanctioned monopoly. I am looking forward to when they have to seriously compete with real high speed wireless broadband that is faster than what the cable vendor even offers.

      The only way this improves (security) is with the use of VPN.

    • D'ya really trust who the operator of that WiFi system is? If so - or what you're doing is benign, no VPN.

      Now, what is 'benign' to you may well not be to me and vice-versa.
