I can’t see the government shutting off communications, it would ruin the economy.  If a coronal mass discharge hit the Earth with a weakened magnetosphere, we would be toast.   If a nuclear EMP happened it would only fry electronic in the large area, and others would come back on line.   A regular geometric EMP attack would be worse, and our hardened defense would retaliate.  Then we would all be radiated toast, eventually.   We’ve got the hand crank world radio, and longer range walkie talkies.

Otherwise we’d all be in a quick stone age, or at least medieval.
