Using "public" and "secure network" together is an oxymoron, there is no such thing. A public network doesn't have to be hacked into because anyone can access it. Using public Wi-Fi leaves you vulnerable to all kinds of security issues. There are some encryption programs available to help protect your data, but I'm not familiar with them and don't know how well they work. Using a public (or your neighbor's non-secure) network as a regular means of accessing the internet is not a good idea if you keep any sort of personal info on your computer and don't want to be open to viruses. Even if you don't do anything that requires security while on the public network, someone looking to steal you data can load a program that you'll never know about that will transmit your information at a later time even when you access it from a secure network.
TQ...you might want to look at a package deal with your home phone (if you have one) or cell phone provider.
