AT&T Cell Service was down in Huntsville for 36 hours due to the bombing in Nashville. It affected 911 and stores’, as large as Walmart, ability to accept anything other than cash.
While I am not attempting to diminish in any way the horror Nashville is facing, it seems ridiculously easy to bring our communications network to its knees.
As a country, we need to address this. Privatizing everything, and doing everything as cheaply as possible isn’t safe.
