It seems they are, and an obvious and logical step, that said a client in an HFC area signed up recently as was given POTs from the local TCL/Voda pstn switch and not offered a voip option, and TV was delivered via IP not HFC.

I must admit our BB connection is not 100% reliable we do get a few drop outs so it may pay me to stick with what I have.

It used to be much worse, dropping out for days at a time, the exchange that it goes through is old, and I was complaining every month or so, but it has been upgraded a while back and the drop outs are short and less frequent we now have a fantastic speed of 5-6 mbs, we are so lucky. wink

There is a myth in there, that phones will always work without power.

 

 

 

It's not actually the case, in actually it's just normally the battery/generator hold up service from the cabinet/exchange side..
