Comment posted What’s a fibreoptic cable doing lying on a beach anyway? by Lundavra.
You get what you pay for, if you buy a telephone line then that is what you get. If you need resilience then you install a system with an independent backup connection, perhaps a small mobile phone module built into the unit.
Many commercial systems specify two independent circuits that never come near each other even when they enter the user’s premises. But it costs a lot more.

The Traffic Scotland website is poorly designed. Most people wanting to check roads for their journey would go to Current Incidents but it does not show at all there. Often if a road is closed for several days, it will be well down the bottom of the page, if not on the next page, with traffic queues given higher priority.
