    Background:

    Verizontal is pushing their FIOS PON offering to residences. It will
    put IP access, 'cable' TV and POTS phone on glass. They then cut down
    your copper drop.

    But midst the VoIP E911 dustup, the issue of backup power has
    arisen. The FIOS box needs local power, and a small gel-cell
    good for say 5 hours. The *subscriber* must buy and install new
    ones as needed. Some pholks are dubious how well that will work...

    Foreground:

    There's one report that Verizontal, in ex-NuNuts territory, is also
    not maintaining batteries in their on-premises DS-3 -> n DS-1's mux's.
    Only if you get a full DS-3 will they bother.

    Question:

    Have any NANOG'ers [NANOGites? NANOGees?] run into this? Again, this
    is LEC owned, LEC maintained, equipment....Do you provide generator
    power for such in your space?
