Fibrephone

What happens when the broadband goes down which happens with increasing and alarming frequency recently? I wouldn't be able to inform you from the landline because it would be down as well. Does the fibrephone record missed calls during down time? I have a number of calls from the hospital regarding attendance for ct scans or chemotherapy and I'm worried that I might miss those.

Re: Fibrephone

i assume you mean the voip phone - thats a phone plugged into the back of the hub - afaik if the BB is down then any incoming calls would be lost 

you really need to add another method of communication for such outages - a mobile is the obvious alternative

Re: Fibrephone

So it's just a way of getting us to invest in a mobile phone, really. Absolutely no benefit whatsoever to the customer himself. In fact, a great inconvenience.

Re: Fibrephone

Hi weedavie

It is the same as a landline you are right in saying that 

However our Exchanges are becoming old now and we do need to move with the times 

VOIP is a much better way to make and receive calls 

I know some people may not be a fam of this, the same with people that are happy to go with it
