    Default UPS Backup for power outage - modem/s

    I am looking for a UPS solution for when the power goes out, specifically only for my Fibre modems - the one on the wall and the actual modem.
    I just need something that can run that for 3 to 4 hours when there is load shedding so that I at least still have internet when there is no power so that I can watch Netflix on my tablets.

    Any recommendations here or anyone who uses a solution like this?

    Thanks. That seems perfect then. Now the fibre guys just need to ensure their systems can run during load shedding as I have an old UPS that can run the modems for 10 minutes yet the fibre goes down.

    Got an email from them saying they are working on getting enough backup systems in place to handle the outages.

    Even the cell phone reception is gone when the power goes out.
