Drink.  That's my solution.

Well, that's not true.  Sometimes I just can't bring myself to offer a serious answer to a very good question.  This is one of those times

Ron and Alexandra- mine rarely goes out (knock wood) and when it does it's not for long.  I can use my phone as a HotSpot or my iPad.

I'm pretty sure I have enough files in a folder called "Docs TBS" that will keep me busy for quite a while. It's a rarity that we lose access, maybe twice in the last 10 years.

I can use my phone and my iPad (which is tied into my phone service so no need for separate wifi) without interruption, wherever I go and can get access.

I will often go to Starbucks.  Or, sometimes I go downstairs to our gym as I can get internet there.  Or, if I just need something quick, I can use my phone.

Or, I just do something else - take a bath, relax, eat, play w/ cats, call a friend, do other work that doesn't require the internet.

I too will try to get by with my phone for a while, though it's not a very fast option.  My second option would be to go somewhere where I can get access like the library or Starbucks.

We have a wireless phone that finds the nearest hotspot.....and I just chill.  But, sometimes I write posts if I can't get on and save them  for later.  If I were a realtor who needed access 24/7 , I would make sure that I still had a backup.
