How to Have WiFi or Internet during power Outage?
The solution is simple and most people do not even realize it but for most forms of internet the Internet is still there during a power outage but due to the fact that there is no power you would never know.
Now if you were to purchase a Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) this would fix your issue easily. In fact I have a great recommended UPS that I purchased and started to use recently.
A added bonus of a ups is that it can power your desktop or charge other devices too from the power it stores. You could even simply use it for your modem only. Finally in case the power suddenly goes off and comes back on your modem will not reboot as it normally would and have you wait each time for the 2-3 minutes boot up and connection time.
Where to buy a reliable UPS?
You can purchase a reliable UPS below.
Benefits of this method:
1.You can have internet in a power outage.
2.No more waiting for modem to boot backup in case of sudden power cut and then the power returns.
3.You can charge your phone and other devices from the UPS allowing you to work for longer.

People should know this will not always work. We have Frontier DSL service and their switching station does not have a battery backup. When the power in our area goes down, so does the Frontier DSL switching station, taking our internet service out.
Yes that’s true if your ISP or the base station they use does not have power of battery backup this will not work as you still need the Internet source to be up for this to work which varies based on setup.
I have Frontier DSL and my house has solar panels with backup battery for lights, freezer, computers and TV. During a recent storm that took out our power, after resetting the TV and router I was able to continue the internet streaming video I had been watching for several hours.
