i was told that people can steal my internet if i use clearwire, is this true, how is this possible?

if true, how can i protect from this happening, and is there anything else that is problematic when using clearwire?

So clearwire is a wireless sevice ?

http://www.clearwire.com/

If your talking about being piggybacked by someone next store, by riding in on the net off your wi-fi connection, you'll have to seach into it and check reviews from people who actually use it. i would also ask the company itself about security issues if there are any.

people cant piggyback of you, with clearwire, cuz clearwire is double encrypted and is on private frequency. the only they could do it i guess if thery figured out what frequency it was on and find a way to descamble the informtion.
