[telecom] FIOS battery life?

FIOS requires house power to run. The setup includes a battery in case of a power failure, but I've heard* the battery lasts only three hours. When the power failure exceeds that the subscriber is out of luck.

  • Friend in suburban Washington who has FIOS and lost phone service after three hours due to the storm power failures which lasted far longer.

That sounds right. VZ doesn't replace the battery, so the older the battery is, the faster your phone fails.

With Vonage it all goes away immediately with a power failure.
