Drink. That's my solution.
Well, that's not true. Sometimes I just can't bring myself to offer a serious answer to a very good question. This is one of those times
Margaret Rome Baltimor...
I have several backups, my phone, my office, planet fitness, restaurants.
Use cell phone as mobile hot spot...
Ron and Alexandra- mine rarely goes out (knock wood) and when it does it's not for long. I can use my phone as a HotSpot or my iPad.
I'm pretty sure I have enough files in a folder called "Docs TBS" that will keep me busy for quite a while. It's a rarity that we lose access, maybe twice in the last 10 years.
I can use my phone and my iPad (which is tied into my phone service so no need for separate wifi) without interruption, wherever I go and can get access.
I do as much as I can with my phone and wait for the internet to come back on.
I try to read or catch up with friends, colleagues and/or clients on the phone.
Well, I take Willie the Labradoodle on a nice long walk. Or I pick up the phone and call past clients.
I will often go to Starbucks. Or, sometimes I go downstairs to our gym as I can get internet there. Or, if I just need something quick, I can use my phone.
Or, I just do something else - take a bath, relax, eat, play w/ cats, call a friend, do other work that doesn't require the internet.
I have much to do, so I just change gears nd do something else until it comes back on.
Knock on wood, our has not gone out. But if it did, I could access it with my cell phone, I think.
I too will try to get by with my phone for a while, though it's not a very fast option. My second option would be to go somewhere where I can get access like the library or Starbucks.
I have a hard wire at home and a smart phone. I try not to depend to much on either so I opperate well when this does happen.
I use my iPhone as a hotspot or use my iPad on cellular.
It's an issue...thankfully it doesn't go down often. I use my phone, and live across from a public library with wifi. When I've had to I go there, or to starbucks.
WIth all the ice storms we have had power seems to go out often and with it the internet. My IPHONE is the savior
We have a wireless phone that finds the nearest hotspot.....and I just chill. But, sometimes I write posts if I can't get on and save them for later. If I were a realtor who needed access 24/7 , I would make sure that I still had a backup.
