But you pay again for those different methods......
I agree that is probably the future - but - it seems to be sensible you now need satellite and land line and terestrial transmission.
What does worry me - is just how easy it would actually be to cut off all communication between people.
I would have to get a line from a different exchange to get a land line back up (very costly) - and highly likely to go down at the same time.
Why do they bother to even claim a service will be provided 'over the airwaves'? It just is not there reliably anymore around here - wireless is dead - long live wireless!!
Note: I am not legally qualified, just been around a few blocks. The sorry cynic.
