Rural Areas - SafeThese areas tend to have less hacking, simply because computer criminals are less active in rural areas. However, the telecom industry usually delays updates their security in rural areas. To find a safe network while traveling, please look for university networks, bank networks, and Starbucks locations. Businesses that pay a premium for their ISP's business service are more likely to have secured DNS (e.g. AT&T business).
Check your network for secured DNS. Wait for the green-light before you use the network for sensitive data.
