When I need to connect to the net from my computer and I do not have normal access, I simply turn my phone into a hot spot and connect. Should the fiber to the house go out, I can hook my phone up to my router and all devices on the network now have access to the outside world.
Even if I didn't need a cell phone for work purposes, I'd still have one over a land line as it gives me far more flexibility.
