Re: Analog Voice Gateways

Isn't there priority access for government, aid, and emergency workers?

I am just referencing general, non-emergency power outages. Verizon is rock solid, AT&T goes on the fritz within a few minutes.

There should be, but not on mobile communications.

On paper, yes. Telco's are well known for cutting corners and just paying the fines later. (also, there's only so much protected capacity for 911; it can still be swamped.)

There actually is.

I'm not comparing cabinet and bunker sites, just saying that Verizon has more backup than anyone else.

On paper like cramer said, just not usually in practice.
