Re: Caller ID

The Verizon tech that came out to my house said many people were switching their home phone back to Verizon after the October snowstorm as the Comcast phone modems died later the same night the power went out and many were without power a week or more. People with Verizon had service provided that the lines between the subscriber and the CO were not disrupted and that the CO remained online.

Yes, any VOIP solution is doomed in a widespread power outage.... and in a serious weather event, even cellphones and wireless will go down as the backup batteries and generators are drained of energy and fuel at the various cell sites.
