Wireless comms and the end of civilisation

And the point?

What's your point? It seems that in one sentence you are saying that ... the network will continue with battery backup - so you can make calls... then "in an emergency the government will likely invoke ACCOLC".

So in other words, the net effect is the same... When 99% of the population dies - telephony is fucked.

Although this story is far fetched and stupid - it doesn't matter how many batteries you've got for backup - the network will die... What do you suggest they do... start dialling from 0111 111 1111 to see if anyone answers?

And RayNet?? Errr --- remember 99% of RayNet are dead as well FFS.
