Re: Verizon FIOS Battery Backup

said by PoloDude:

Again,why are the Cable Cos not held to the same standard?

Because they don't have the same system as Fios. They don't install battery backups as standard equipment.

So it is ok for them to provide no backup, versus a system that has a backup but it requires the customer to replace a battery every 4-5 years?

But their local neighborhood feeds do use power supplies, and when the electricity goes out so do the feeds, at lease until they hook up temporary power generators for their line amplifiers.
