Quote from: MDK on June 17, 2011, 02:44:16 PMThe power outage thing is a valid point, but back during hurricane Floyd, we were out of power for 5 days. Our POTS phones worked for less than one day. Apparently some sort of local switch station had enough backup battery power for about 8 hours, and then it was dead. POTS is not a totally infallible system, but I trust it far more than I trust anything over the internet.
