These days, the Internet connection that I have at my house is like any other utility. I expect that it will be there and be up and running...just like the electricity, gas and water. I honestly have experienced very few Internet outages in the past few years....in fact....I'd almost say that I have had more power outages than Internet outages.
And in the event that my home internet connection is down, I "could" if necessary tether my laptop to my cellular phone and access the Internet that way. So there are at least options. Another option might be to move my laptop to a free wi-fi hotspot and access my data from there. While not the most convenient....more than possible. I cannot remember the last time I was able to pick up my TV and haul it into McDonalds to watch a movie when my power was out.
