BROADBAND OVER POWER LINES

AT&T and Pacific Gas and Electric are testing a plan to send
broadband communications over power lines as an alternative to cable
and DSL for delivering high-speed Internet access. The test will
involve about 100 residents in Menlo Park, California, where the power
grid is used to feed 13
megabits-per-second Internet access to Wi-Fi repeaters on street
lampposts.
Homes then receive up to 3mbps of wireless Net access.

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell says
that broadband over power line (BPL) technology makes it
"theoretically
possible to reach every power outlet in America with a broadband
connection."
