Being a target victim of a hacker, I suddenly came up with an emergency protocol (Emergency Protocol 06) which involves computer scans, network disconnection, pass code implementation, security questions etc. Now several hours afterwards, I started to think about the dangers of the information highway, as perhaps we're speeding a bit too fast, end up in a high-speed crash and all that. Then after that, I asked myself, "What if this highway were to blow up?".

Sure, the satellites serve as a sort of backup cable, but really, it's not enough for the world to use. Hell, the only reason the Philippines has any internet is one, tiny, undersea cable from Japan. Not exactly tiny, but it's the reason why our "fast speeds" are just painstakingly slow to the more developed countries.
This is more of a survival question, after a post... post... I don't know. Won't be really post-apocalyptic, but it is suckish and all communications gets cut around the world.
If it wereto happen, what will you do?
Oh yeah, don't post stuff like "that's impossible" or improbability whatnot. It's a theoretical situation that is highly unlikely to happen, but if it were to be...
