I realize the rules in NY may be different, but my telco supplied
fiber modem, which is about the size of a pack of cards, comes with a
much larger 12V UPS with a substantial battery. I looked at the specs
for the modem and the UPS and it appears that the battery is good for
about four days.

They sure seem ready to take down the oopper. The installer was sad
when I told him to leave my six-pair copper cable alone even though
nothing is using it now.
