2019-03-10 Phones Work During Power Outages?

From FB group Orange Talk Mar 11

The old fashion ‘non electric’ phone depends on the phone line for its power. The old phone lines used to have backup power at the central office, so they worked if the power went out. But nowadays the power comes from a local box which has batteries but they don’t last for long, maybe an hour. If you have cable it’s worse: the phone is run by a battery that’s inside or outside of your home, so if you lose power the battery may last only a short time. So having a ‘non electric’ phone is no guarantee your phone will work during a power outage.
