With the networks down yesterday, I felt lost with no internet

 

It makes you realise just how much we rely on the phone networks and how much they control our lives

 

Just think what would happen if they all got shut down.......

 

Scary when you think about it

If it had just been texts and data yes, but the more concerning bit was that people couldn't make or receive calls which could have been worrying for vulnerable users (kids and their parents, the elderly and disabled)

All it did is give me a day off. Thankyou technology for being unpredictable. 😁

I've seen quite a number of threads saying how people have struggled to cope.

 

It just shows how times have changed. I didn't have a mobile till I was in my 20s, yet I still made it to today lol Smiley Tongue
