What would happen if the internet stopped for a day? Or worse, what if the Internet were to cease functioning altogether?
If the internet were to cease functioning, the effect would be similar for many people. They grew up with ubiquitous communication, information at their fingertips and shopping at the click of a mouse.
For the everyday person, some cell phone services and text messaging would be unavailable, all mobile apps and social networking sites would be down, cloud storage would be inaccessible, any pending electronic payments would fail, and more.
