Life off the web

Dear Editor:

After today’s complete loss of communications within and going out of Pagosa, I am left to wonder what single-point failure can lead to CenturyLink, Verizon, ATT (are there others) to all go down at the same time? Assuming that it was not a trial run by some cyber-terror group (humor intended), I am once again reminded at how limited is the vision of our Town and County leaders on the vital importance to commerce and growth of our Internet connectivity and bandwidth. Are they all Luddites?
