Battery Backup for River Valley Internet Phone Service
What Happens When Power Goes Out?
Unlike with a traditional copper phone line, if utility power to your home or business is lost your phone service will not continue to operate, as it requires power at your location.
You can purchase a standard battery backup, from any electronics retailer or online store, which you can use to keep your internet, wireless router, and phone service running in the event of a power outage. Most small battery backups will keep your communication services running for anywhere between 2-4 hours.
River Valley Internet provides, for purchase, a battery backup unit which will keep your internet, WiFi and phone service running for 24 hours in the event of a power outage at your home or business. During a power outage, you must use a corded telephone or other device which does not rely on commercial power.
If you would like to purchase a 24 hour capable battery backup unit from River Valley Internet, please contact customer service at 570-433-7070. The 24 hour battery unit is available for purchase for $600.
