Did you not check your kitchen cupboards, or isn't there an internet provider out there to do that for you?
Is that to me regarding my not eating comment @simdagger?
If so, it's entirely my own fault, I buy food daily to force myself to go out otherwise I just wouldn't because I'm in so much pain. At times when I am too unwell to go out I could and should order in, (delivery either from a takeaway or a supermarket), I just haven't bothered. No sympathy is required it's a choice I've made. If I get hungry enough before my mobility improves I'll order in. Simple.
I was just illustrating that despite being ill myself I have managed to ensure that my telecommunications needs are met, (unless O2, Three and Vodafone all go down at once), given their importance to me/my life.

This is the technological age in all its imperfection. If you don't have a back up plan, you are screwed. I have still have a landline, but also a second sim on another network.
What you need in your case is a backup land-line or a dual SIM phone with a backup SIM if your disability is that urgent to require 24/7 connectivity. I know you probably didn't think of this before, but if you have the money, get a dual-sim phone, have giffgaff as one, and a backup network (EE, due to its wide coverage and use of different freq. spectrum) as the other, and do a chargeable event once every six months. Give your parents both numbers. In the event of failure of giffgaff the EE can be called as a backup number.
Hope you get well soon!
@majorincident deffo going to get a spare sim and keep it topped up . x
No need to keep it topped up. Just put a fiver, or the minimum amount, on the sim and make a call or send a text every once in a while. My second sim doesn't get used at all now, but I will be reminded by the provided that nothing has happened on it in the past 180 days and if I want to keep the number to make a call or send a text. I send a one word text to my active sim.
