@dernalbert @FuzzyLogic When i had fiber installed in 2017 i asked them for batt backup and got it. Make sure you have a power plug available for both ont and batt and in my case the t3200m all in one location. I had all in place before asking for the fiber. Telephone copper was right there to do the transfer. I knew batt was available but was it comon to offer it then ??? I have push button phones for backup in my basement and garage. Polecat

It is offered in areas with poor cellular coverage, or to customers without cellular service. I expect managing battery replacement became a time liability, and most folks had other options for telephone coverage during power outages. If important for you, consider a UPS, and you can power all your telecommunications system (phone and internet).
@NFtoBC I have thought about a ups. My ont is backed up by a telus batt backup because i have telephone on fiber. I am thinking a smaller ups could run the 3200m and give us access to the internet during outages. Retired power linemen i have a generator but would not trust it to deliver a constant 60 hrz. We seem to get a couple of 24 to 36 hour outages a year now always tree related. We have disabilitys and with the virous would be easier to text and mail friends during outages A small ups would allow the 3200 to give us wifi correct. Polecat
