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 a one-time purchase for $600. These units come with a one-year warranty on product and battery.
