Pull out the tin can and string time. We use smoke signals on days when the wind does not cause garble. And carrier pigeons can be effective communication devices. But we do lose a few to sharp shooters and hawks, bald eagles. How loud can you holler Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS to reach buyers and sellers to update them on deals? Seriously, cell phones don't do down and life goes on in the palm of your hand.

I use my phone as a tether in a power outage with EasyTether Pro. Also good when you go somewhere & their speed it not up to what it could be. So I carry my own internet so to speak & hook my computer to it.

Not a hotspot per se.  Carriers charge for hotspot data but using this is just like doing a regular phone call.

Actually, it happens here often as we live in South Florida:) 

We have a generator, to power up- but with the heavy weight on priorities after a hurricane we don't like to use our cell phones either unless it is very necessary. 

Most of the time, I will post to Facebook that I am out of commission until I get the internet back.

We had a dis-spirited cable employee who got inside a tunnel cut off all fiberoptic cables for perhaps 200K residents.  Those who really wanted to use internet drive 30 minutes. In our case, I met several realtors at the community center pool work out.
