Thanks for confirming what I suspected to be the case. The only down side
that I see is that, when winter ice storms hit and the electric power is
interrupted, with the AT&T lines, we still have phone service, powered by
the copper phone line. Using house power, there will be no phone service.
Behind my house there is a power line fuse that powers our block and several
others. When squirrels or limbs short the line and blow the fuse link, I
guess I will have to resort to my cell phone to report the outage.
