SOFTBANK's network down the other day was amazing. I was at home and the iPhone was connected to WiFi, so I had only the influence that I could not call.
Just as I was down the network I was playing with the iPhone, so I saw the antenna level of the mobile network goes to zero.
"Well, the antenna has turned to 0", I was amazed and gave a voice.
But, as I was at home, the iPhone was connected to WiFi, so it only affected me as I could not call the second daughter who was using the Mimamori Mobile. The second daughter was just going to visit my friend's house at that time and was supposed to call me at the time I went back, but I could not make that phone.
Well, my friend's house is a neighborhood, so my wife went to pick me up.
In the world, it seems that there were various problems such as not being able to charge Suica, not being able to contact the nursery school, or being unable to download the ticket, but I thought whether they would not normally use WiFi normally.
I wrote about this blog post before, but in urban areas there are lots of facilities and shops where WiFi can be used without leading to a mobile network. Especially convenience stores are a familiar shop that you can easily connect to WiFi.
I think that there are many people who do not know well because they need a password to connect to WiFi.
As I mentioned before, " If you install target = "_ blank"> Town WiFi "on your smartphone, you can connect to any convenience store easily at any convenience store without troublesome connection work.
Town WiFi automatically installs settings (profiles) for connecting to WiFi in various WiFi spots on the smartphone and automatically connects to WiFi when launching an application that connects to the Internet when connectable.
This time, when SoftBank's mobile network goes down, if you rush into a nearby convenience store and launch ticket application or try to access the ticket download site with a browser, it will automatically be connected to WiFi and easily without difficult work You should have dealt with the problem.
When you launch the Line application, it will automatically be connected to WiFi and you should have been able to make free calls.
It's better to stop relying on mobile networks only.
Of course, many people do not understand the difference between the mobile network and the Internet that can be connected via WiFi. Most people say that SoftBank's shops are set up to connect to the mobile network, so they never thought about networks.
However, as long as you use a service that uses the Internet, you should know that there is a way to connect to the Internet even in situations where mobile networks can not be used. There is nothing difficult. Just keep in mind that installing "Town WiFi" will help you in many cases.
