WSGW OnLine Poll:      Cell Phones or Landlines or Both

(February 28 – March 6, 2024)

The recent nationwide outage involving AT&T brought attention to the question of how to communicate without cell service. It’s not the first time there has been a communications disruption and it won’t be the last.

This outage also raised new concerns of possibly a wider shutdown of service due to a large solar flare event or some type of attack.

Experts say this is why having a landline is always advised. Others say it’s inconvenient, but manageable.
