Re: Really?
@freehe  I would say it always good to have backup as in my case I always have two post paid cellphones, one prepaid cellphone,  cables VOIP, land line and in the basement two CB radios... my alarm is stand alone system attached to UPS with two Alarms speakers on each floor... plus on each floor I have emergency light and strobe lights... but I live in rural area... as some of the people do not have even landlines - only CB radios...

Re: Really?
ms.akkineni, I have a landline as well for my security alarm. I think it is a bad move to deliver a limited product like Google Fiber for home phones. If you aren't going to offer all of the featuers of other providers such as Verizon what's the point.

Re: Really?
@Michelle - you aren't the only one who feels that way.  If you Google, "Is Google becoming SkyNet?"  It is actually a "thing" - Google even autofills it for you...hmmm...suspicious.

Re: Really?
That's a very good question.

I was wondering the same thing. I'm a Verizon customer and I know of their backup. Yes, if the power does go off I was thinking about what their backup is. I still think the Fiber Phone can go places and become something bigger.

Re: Really?
dmendyk, have to agree. Most companies that set out to conquer markets take a Napoleonic/U.S. Grant approach: map out the territory you want to own, drive into it in a planned, coherent way, seize the key points early, etc.  Google's corporate culture has always favored an approach more like the expansion of the British Empire, the westward expansion in the US, or the barbarian invasions of the Roman Empire: a lot of lower level leaders opportunistically grabbing whatever is next to them and trying to grab more from there, being slapped down or rewarded more or less according to success. So my guess for what Google is "up to" is that the Fiber Phone is the product of a long period when it just kept making the cut for possible cost/possible reward ratio. Very much like Google itself, or Chrome, or acquiring YouTube, etc.

Re: Really?
Hi my question is how is the voice service going to work when those people lose their power. Like that of the telco they use the central office as a way to power their voice, and know with Verizon FiOS they have a battier back up. I read that you are able to use your cellphone does that work though the cloud service and does that also cover life line and e911 service

Re: Fair price
Yes, I agree.

I think not only is this a good idea, but the price is low which is an obvious plus. I think it fits the situation especially since they're trying to get consumers on board and bring in more clients.
