disaster communications in the media

There’s an interesting article over on El Reg about the current remake of the old end-of-the-world class Survivors – apparently (I’ve not been watching) the program posits a total collapse of communications, whereas the article suggests that things won’t actually be that bad. Mobiles will go, yes, but landlines – and certainly privileged government links – will survive for a good long while without human intervention. In addition, there’s Raynet – the radio amateurs’ emergency network.
