[PLUG] Forced FIOS upgrade?

> think they've been trying to change things, but I believe they are
still required to maintain your landline. 

Additionally, the Fiber Lines require a battery that is supposed to be
AOK for 8 hours without power, but never is.

Also, because this is your aged white-haired mother, you want COPPER
which does not require a battery.  They have to consider this.  Because
of safety issues of her age, you require 100% uptime from Verizon and
"you do not want a downgrade in service" that a battery backup system
could present.  The 12 volt copper phone line should be what she should

We had this battle with Verizon over a relative's 90 year old father who
was still living alone, who with daily checks and visiting help coming
in daily, was still independent.
