Virgin Media? More like Virgin Meltdown: Brit broadband ISP falls over amid power drama

Reliable internet

If you depend on the internet, especially for your business then you should have backups... I work from home, and i have 2 lines (cable through virgin and a separate adsl over bt infrastructure), i also have 4g tethering available if necessary. I also have battery powered devices (laptop, phone) which can continue service for a while in the event of a power outage.

Home internet connections are designed to be affordable and for casual use, where it's only a minor inconvenience if it goes down.
