Also note that accidentally logging in to the wrong site is rather likely in a "foreign" network, because intranets often have some hosts that use "generic" hostnames like www, wiki, mail etc. For these names, it is quite likely that they will exist in the foreign network, too.

Thanks for the information, very interesting. Since not everyone can read the book (and since answers should stand on their own): Could you explain a bit more how TCP slow start, radio controllers and configuration contribute to latency?
