Hi, I have my internet service with centurylink, and does anyone know if they provide or sell a modem with battery backup, for when the power goes out, my phones will still work?
I have full VoIP service, and lose them when there is no power. I got rid of my POTS line and wondering if anyone knew. Thankyou

Are you speaking Fiber or DSL? Generally Fiber has battery backup and DSL doesn't. Any luck contacting them in your area?

If their answer is no, consider purchasing a decent battery backup unit. Tripp Lite is one such manufacturer.

That is more a surge protector not a UPS.

It does offer battery backup. Depending upon the power consumption of the modem, it could hold it up for a while. Check the modem's power draw and figure out how long it can be supported by the UPS.

If it is DSL, your phone line should still be coming from a local CO or terminal that has backup power. If you lose power at your residence, sure the modem may go down, but your POTS line should still function as you should still have -48VDC on it.
