Comcast Phone

I can understand why my computer and television don't work when there is an electricity outage - but why do I loose telephone service as well?   Are all cable services dependent upon electric lines?

Re: Comcast Phone

If you have a corded phone without a power supply plugged in to your voice modems telephone jack and if your voice modem has a back up battery you should be able to use your phone during a power outage.
