On Friday, July 8th a huge majority of Canada woke up without service. No internet, no cable, no cell service, and no Interac.
Despite the general inconvenience of not being connected, there were major implications to this outage. Organizations and dealerships alike were completely cut off from their networks - this meant, no sales, no access to schedule appointments, inability to order products or schedule deliveries.
