In 2018, a day without internet is a catastrophe for some.
AT&T customers in the Dallas area were treated to a day of old-school activities after a lightning strike on a connection hub—and the resulting fire—downed their internet for 12-plus hours, from 9:45 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Suffice it to say, customers were unimpressed with AT&T’s response.
When the company failed to provide a timeline for when customers might get their internet and cable service back, users took to Twitter via their mobile phones. (An internet outage will not stop an angry online mob.)
