Home Phone Service – Battery Backup

Our phone service utilizes equipment that is connected to your home’s power. Because our equipment does not include a backup battery source, if there is power interruption to your home, your service will not work. Backup batteries may be purchased to supply power to the phone equipment should a power outage occur. Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) can be purchased from brick-and-mortar or online retailers that can provide up to 24 hours of power for our equipment. We’ve identified and tested two products manufactured by APC that offer a 2-year warranty, can operate between 5° F and 113° F have lights to monitor the power source, and include an easy test button. These two products are listed below.
