Re: [Optimum Voice] How was phone service during power outage?

said by Tech :

CV techs are on generator powering the node and in some instances there are unmanned generator chained to power supplies

I saw no evidence of this in my neighborhood during the past week. Also OptWiFi hotspots in blacked-out areas were not working until power was restored.

Optimum WiFi was working here and as far as I can tell almost the whole neighborhood was out. I used it in at least 4 spots were the cross streets power was out.

If your whole nieghborhood was out then most likely every power supply may have been out 1-4 or more. There not gonna put that many generators for houses that dont have electric. Maybe a few houses with generators may have benefited but overall no

We never lost power, but CV services were out for 5 days. Came right on when they restored power to the street where the node is.

Happens to us each storm - never seen a CV generator.

I saw one in Bedford, NY this morning. It was being watched by a Cablevision tech.
