My $120 UPS will keep the TA and cable modem up for hours.
My cables are buried and not accessible unless they want to snoop in my yard with a detector - a risky proposition for them if they do.
If my service is somehow interrupted, incoming calls are automatically routed to my cell phone.
My service has E-911, so that's not an issue. The location is automatically provided.
My cell phone has 911 and local PD in speed dial, so if 911 fails, I have the local dispatcher as a backup.
My Voip service will locate me at up to 5 numbers if I need to be available for emergencies - or just want automatic forwarding.
Finally, reliability - I had 1-2 outages a year with my Sprint landline, none in the last two years with my VoIP service(ATT).
So, it's hard to be scared of the VoIP service I have today.
