POTS shouldn't be affected by a uverse outage. I would think it shouldn't be. If you are having a pots problem, please contact us and I can get to work on it.
Thanks for offering to help out, David. The POTS Outside Line Technician coincidentally just happened to be onsite to fix a POTS problem (broken jumper in the VRAD) during the time of the U-Verse Outage.
