Telstra wants a Wi-Fi nation, but what about security?

Despite assurances from Telstra, data security concerns will keep some customers away. Here's a look at safety on Wi-Fi networks.

Telstra is set to spend over a $100 million to build a national Wi-Fi network and while this isn’t the first time the telco has tried to do this, Telstra boss David Thodey reckons now is the best time to build a Wi-Fi nation.
