What we need is a plan B....there is no plan B right now, there's no clear backup system that we very carefully kept to be independent of the internet . What we need is something that doesn't necessarily have the performance of the internet .This doesn't need to be a multi-billion dollar government project. It's actually relatively simple to do technically because it can use existing fibers that are in the ground, existing wireless infrastructure. It's basically a matter of deciding to do it
