My concerns most to less important to me are:

Any personal information or credit information stolen
Businesses loss of communication
Any one that needs 911 and does not have a cell phone
Residential land line loss of service
The future of Voip.ms for residential or business.
Missing the political calls. sf-surprised

Luckily we have 2 mobile phones for back up.

On my prepaid Public Mobile I have unlimited inbound calls, free 911 and depending on the plan 100 minutes of Canada wide or unlimited.

Currently with the reward system they have, I pay 0 for my phone and $1 for my wife's. With the plan to exceed the rewards by an extra $5 to build up both account balances, monthly. It won't be long.

So since I track my voip.ms for inbound/outbound minutes. I can see getting a Panasonic link2cell and a 3rd Public Mobile account. Will have to research of the Panasonic set and determine our average outbound calling minutes per month. It's funny that when a crisis happens what alternative plan you can be pushed to putting into place.

Right now I feel sorry for any one that has the loss of phone service.

Just FYI: in Canada, any cell phone on GSM network should be able to call 911. Even if cell phone has deactivated SIM card or no SIM card at all.

If you are concerned about loss of 911 service because your VoIP is down, find any old cell phone collecting dust in your home and it can be used for emergencies.

Unless it is on CDMA network, which would be old Bell or TELUS cell phone. It is because Bell discontinued CDMA network in 2019.

I have worked on rewards over the last 5 years.

Loyalty
Community
Auto pay
Referrals

Referrals are often very disheartening. Get one loose one!!
