Cable to connect battery to ONT

Message 1 of 3

 Hello,


As the title suggests, I'm missing the cable that connects the battery to the ONT. I recently moved into my house and both the battery and cable were missing to the ONT. I purchased a new battery, but now I cannot connect the battery to the ONT. Is there a way to get the cable through Verizon?

I am not certain if this response applys. I understand from another help site that verizon no longer installs bbu’s so it may be the case. Is everything else functioning as it should? If it is i wouldn’t worry about it. If its making noise then call verizon to come look at the ONT .

Most likely the previous owner took out the battery and cut the cable.

Battery only supplies power for landline phone use during a power outage.

If you are looking for service while power is out for TV or internet, you would need to connect to a small home ups instead.
