Re: POTS 911 vs Vonage 911
said by snolsen:This is true.
With VOIP e911, when your power goes out so does your e911. If you have POTS, I bet you still have a dial tone (if you use the old style phones).
If you are concerned about having 911 access during a power outage with VoIP, there are two options:
a) Plug your modem, router, ATA and phone (if cordless) into a UPS so that they will have power in the event of a power outage.
b) (much simpler) Have a cell phone handy.
