Re: No thanks

I have FTTP and can confirm that there is a battery backup so I can make calls during a power cut which would be good if I used the phone over FTTP, but I don't. Instead I still use my copper POTS line because BT can't transfer the number I have had on POTS for the last 24 years, despite it only differing in the last 3 digits. I'm told that one day they will be able to port the number. Till then their plans to get rid of POTS sound a bit nebulous.
