You also have to consider how long your cable/telco has battery power 
for. Most have generators at the CO, but if your DSL comes off an RT or 
your local cable company has a box on a pole, they probably don't budget 
for more than 6-12hrs, and that was before that last round of expensive 
upgrades that doubled power utilization.
