​Do you recall what did not work?​​

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop

  NetworkManager should check for Internet connection

Status in Canonical System Image:
Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Have SIM with bad data plan.*
  Wi-FI OFF.
  Cellular data ON (and ofono reports Attached = 1)
  $ gdbus call -e -d com.ubuntu.connectivity1 -o /com/ubuntu/connectivity1/NetworkingStatus -m org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get com.ubuntu.connectivity1.NetworkingStatus Status

  What happens
  (<uint32 70>,) (NM_STATE_CONNECTED_GLOBAL) [1]

  What should happen:
  (<uint32 20>,) (NM_STATE_DISCONNECTED) [1]

  This assumes that NetworkManager's State property definition of
  “Connected” is equal to “Connected to the Internet”. If it's not, then
  this needs to be resolved elsewhere.

  * Not sure what the exact definition of a bad data plan is, but assume
  “out of cash”, but ofono still attaches.
