Is Karma MiFi Sharing Safe?
by Timothy J Rothermel
I live in SF, and I am intrigued by the Karma MiFi sharing idea.
I became aware of Karma just moments ago when looking over your list of MiFi providers and plans. Let me note that although this is the first time I have left a comment, I have been using your PWG site for years. It is my bible before I make any prepaid device or plan purchases.
So I guess I probably have seen Karma on the list before and immediately dismissed it as a viable option for me because of security concerns with the whole sharing thing.
I have 2 questions that I am hoping someone or you can answer for me, as I am seriously considering taking the KARMA plunge.
First question is: Do you have any numbers on just how many people are using and connecting through Karma sharing. I am surprised that I HAVE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT IT SINCE I LIVE IN TECH SAVVY SF CA, which is why I am asking.
Secondly: Are there any additional security concerns allowing strangers to use my connection?
I appreciate any info you or your readers might have about this. Thank You.
