May 4, 2007, Newsletter Issue #40: No Residential VOIP in a Power Outage

Tip of the Week

Will Residential VOIP service work in a power outage? In a word -- no. Like your computer, the Residential VOIP service requires a modem/adaptor to access the Internet. In a power outage, the modem stays dark and so does anything connected to it. Traditional land lines do not need to be powered from within the home, and can still work in a power outage.
