All of those 10-20 minute increments you spend waiting at your subway stop may become slightly more tolerable soon.

NBC New York is reporting that more and more NYC subway stops and trains are finally getting some wireless service; a boon for those of us who travel underground for long stretches and would like to be able to check our e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter now and again. 30 stations have already made the upgrade with 40 more slated to join the world of wireless internet in the near future.

But, of course, with these new developments come new security challenges. Experts warn that the same recommended security protocol that applies at coffee houses and other free public WiFi spaces should be followed on the subway. Avoid sending personal information in e-mails, and for goodness sake, use a VPN.

Fortunately for you, we have a list of recommended VPNs as well as routers that streamline your VPN experience. Here’s our most recent list of best-selling routers and most popular VPNs. Happy commuting!
