If I had an iPad app I'd be watching TV!

Generator running essential items since we lost power on Monday. ONT/Router powered but don't want to turn on the TV, cable box, audio system, etc. If this fictitious iPad app existed I'd be watching TV too! :-(

Am impressed that FIOS is up and running since we have 5 poles down 100 yards from my home.

Well the fios cables are pretty thick. Guy I work with has a tree lying on his, still has service.

My Neighbors tree took down all the lines and the utility poll in front of my house and atm I am still able to use the phone, watch some FIOS channels (most have degraded signal but around 30 still come in) and use the internet. Pretty amazing considering the fiber line was stretched at least 25 feet. Too bad the electrical line couldn't do the same..

That's what we get for an incredibly aging electricity infrastructure.

I hooked up the generator to the ONT and powered up the router and one TV and STB. It really made the situation easier on everyone. Grandma and Sister who bugged out from South Jersey and Kids were able to relax with some normalcy, while the wife and I took care of the property etc. Kudos to Verizon, whether it is the nature of Fiber I don't know but I am happy to be a customer.

I feel so bad for those people really affected by the storm, we had about 7 trees down and that was nothing compared to those folks who lost everything. We got power back yesterday.

If anyone needs gas and feels like jumping on the parkway the service area @ Forked River had no lines yesterday and since its Ocean County no Odd / Even stuff. Also all the gas stations on Rt72 are open with absolutely no lines....

I did the same as you. Powered the ONT and the router for 7 days w/o power. Was amazed it was up. A+.

And you didn't include CNN and WatchESPN too!
