What happens when my power goes out?
In the event of a power failure, these systems will not function. Your ability to make and receive calls, including calls to 911, is inaccessible until your power is restored.

Conventional wired telephones will normally continue to provide the services you are used to when you need them most and continue to function during a power failure. This lack of service is a reality for VoIP and may worsen if your IP service is interrupted for any reason.

Conventional telephone providers are required to provide you with access to 911 even when you encounter problems with your account or in the event that your account is suspended or cancelled for any reason. Digital telephone providers are not subject to the same laws and regulations, so most likely if your account is cancelled your ability to dial 911 is cancelled at the same time.
