I recommend that broadband networks be shielded to the extent required to keep several communications ports functional serving each city and town after an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack or after an intense solar flare event. Our society is becoming so highly dependent on the Internet and broadband communication that this communication needs to be protected against events that can disable most or the entire communications grid.
