Best Canadian Digital Phone companies to try?
« on: August 06, 2020, 10:55:19 pm »
I am with Distributel and all day today I have had no home phone. I am frustrated because I almost missed out on Halabut dinner with my mom because the door buzzer works through this phone system and with the phone down she could not buzz me to let me know she was hear to pick me up.

I am thinking of switching to another company as this one never gave me good service (buzzing on the line or lots of static or just plain unreliable).

This means all day today (Thursday) I have missed all calls that have tried to reach me. Can't even check the voice mail.

I don't know what to tell you KT.  But it looks like you need to do some research in your area.

I just spent over 2 hours on the phone with them and got my Home Phone through Distributel back up. For now.

What was the problem?  Did they have you try and reboot the device?  ::)

Yes it does actually.  But plugging your routers and modems into a battery backup unit, does help reduce this problem.

 Probably would, I just don't have a UPS at the moment. I have to get around to ordering a battery.

You can always Google it and find a decent price.

 I will get to it eventually. It's been dead for years.

It just shows what your mom's priorities are.

 Very few home pc users invest in a UPS.

True. My mom doesn't know what one is so I have to keep reminding her. Her power doesn't go out a lot so it is not really that important for her to spend the money on one but I have no regrets about buying one. I had to order a replacement battery so far only once and it wasn't that hard to put in. I like the security it gives me to not lose whatever I am working on even if it is just a brownout that I get.

It's not just power losses that a ups system can protect your sensitive electronics from.  It's also power spikes from lightning strikes or lost of power in nearby areas and power dips from sudden power strains on the grid.  Even a simple high joules rated surge protector would be enough for some folks.
