    Ah yes, I suspect we can get all the network operators here to agree
    that any customer of another ISP should buy a second connection "just in
    case". Maybe this breakage will turn out to be the best way for everyone
    to double their customer base overnight.

    But seriously, it shouldn't be necessary to have two connections at
    work, two connections at home, two connections for each mobile device,
    just to ensure that when large providers stop working together you can
    still reach what you need to reach.
