Probably around the time their phone, TV, books, shopping, and *life* are
all delivered over that connectivity.  Especially if they don't have any
meaningful local storage or processing, as everything has been delegated to
"the cloud".

In practice, however, I suspect that we as providers will just get a whole
lot better at providing connectivity, rather than have everyone work out how
to do fully-diverse BGP from their homes.
