Residences aren't critical infrastructure, no matter how angry the owners
get.  I can assure you that infrastructure that really *is* critical do have
their own generators and receive priority attention from the service
providers.

Got news for these folks: if you have cable on the poles spidering in
to lots of homes and businesses you are a critical infrastructure
provider and you need to act like it.

Extended loss of power is a regular, high-probability threat. I think
it reasonable to expect the local communications companies to be ready
for it and capable of keeping the key infrastructure online.
