Going back to Verizon landline
I decided to break my triple play bundle and go back to Verizon since I am getting my security system activated and alarm systems work better with POTS instead of VoIP. My power went out last October for three days (many were without power for a week or more) and the EMTA battery died a couple hours later but the battery in my security panel lasted the whole time the power was out. Plus, our telephone/cable lines are underground. I installed a wireless alarm system myself and its going to be monitored by a local alarm company. The system is a DSC Alexor system.
