I've received lots of letters (and finally an email) about upgrading to digital phone service. Am I one of the last who hasn't upgraded yet or are there others who also haven't done it yet? Right now, I can have more than 2 different phones hooked up, but my understanding is that with the new eMTA or WiFi modem, I can only have 2. Is that correct? I think they should also be within a short distance from each other, not on 2 different floors. Is it even possible to get hooked up with more than 2 voice ports using the new digital equipment options? Also, how long do the batteries last? Thanks!
As long as your phone outlets are connected correctly together, you should be able to use any outlet in the house. You would just need to make sure there is a phone outlet where you will be installing the modem. As for batteries, you can buy ones from Cox that last up to 24hr standby time.
