Mad Dad Tries to Limit his Kids’ Internet Use – But Knocks Out Service to his Whole Town

Dad Jam:  A Father Accidentally Shut Down his Town’s Whole Internet
– While Trying to Limit his Kids’ Screen Time
It’s true that kids aren’t good at putting down their devices; but this is a pretty extreme reaction, from a father.

The outlet, France Bleu, reports that an unnamed dad tried to use an illegal multi-wave band jammer, to temporarily cut off the internet connection at his home – because he was trying to get his two children to put down their devices.

Instead, the device was powerful enough to cut off connectivity to himself – and many others – in the surrounding area.

His neighbors eventually started reporting their outages, after which the government investigated.

Dad’s now in a jam.  He faces up to six months in jail – and a fine of 30,000 euros.
