Wireless Broandband connection.......how secure?

  1. I have to travel for my job constantly. I have been straddled with a dial-up ISP for almost a year and been forced to trade off of a web-based platform for quite sometime. After searching for months for an alternative, I found, much to my dismay, wireless broadband connections provided by the cellphone services to be impressively fast; damn near as fast as cable while you are close to metro areas. My only concern is security.

    Does anyone here have any experience/knowledge about this service? How secure is the connection?
  2. change password often.
  3. Make sure your broker offers an SSL connection to encrypt and help secure your information. Also make sure you have a firewall. A hardware firewall would be best, but software is better than nothing.
