How to keep your home internet alive when your power dies

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a public service announcement: your electric and cable services are in no way related. When your power goes out, you don’t have to lose internet service as well, it just stops working because you need electricity to power your modem and router. If you plug in a CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD Intelligent LCD UPS System between your wall and your modem/router, you’ll never lose internet again during a blackout. The UPS will kick on and supply backup power until the main power comes on, and you won’t even care how long it takes because you’ll be busy streaming Netflix to your smartphone.
