Copper pair has some advantages: cabling in the house is simpler, for

My phone is VoIP over the cable TV network. The terminal has a built in
battery for when power fails.

Not here.

However, there's nothing stopping you
from buying a UPS.

On my expense. They are big, heavy things, and I need to place one
behind the TV, which is already a mare nest of cables. A battery in the
"ONT" (I don't know the English name) by the manufacturer
(Lucent-Alcatel, IIRC) would be trivial to do.

I do have an UPS upstairs that I will migrate downstairs, no
(unsolvable) problem there. The computer has a newer, bigger, one.

I assume your carrier has provided power backup for
their equipment.

Most certainly not.
