One Simple Trick Could Disable a City's 4G Phone Network

"..
High-speed wireless data networks are vulnerable to a simple jamming technique that could block service across much of a city, according to research findings provided to a federal agency last week.
.."

it shouldn't be that simple, if at all.

Hmm... maybe copper-wire POTS will make a comeback, based on its jamming immunity. Perhaps A.Bell wasn't so old in his knowledge, but instead ahead of his time...

Sure wouldn't want to get caught doing that. Your life would be over. Course it could be just about impossible to get caught if you do it right.

Believe it or not, I have wondered about this exact thing for years. Mainly for the many public agencies out there with their trunking systems. One could put a lot of this to a dead stop via radio waves.
