Re: VZW Home Phone Connect

said by itguy05:

One thing to remember is that cell phones still use the POTS network to complete a call. Few cell sites are connected via RF for phone calls. So if the POTS is down to that cell site you're still out of luck....

and most pots lines are digitized somewhere along the route, so they become voip.

Standard POTS may be digitized in the Subscriber Loop Carrier (SLC) world but it is merely a 56k/64k channel muxed out of a DS1 there is no IP involved so it is not VoIP and in fact being a full 56K/64k channel with A/B signaling, it will support modems, FAXs and alarm system dialers.
