Wired News: Surfing Through the Power Grid

This article from Wired magazine resurrects a logical idea that fell during the dot bomb years... Broadband over power lines.... it looks like its finally seeing light of day again... this is a good simple approach to data delivery.

Wired News: Surfing Through the Power Grid: "Customers plug a BPL modem into any electrical wall socket, and send data over the city's electrical wires to substations. The substations are connected to the net by city-owned fiber-optic cables. Because the data travels at higher frequencies than electrical current, the two do not interfere with each other. "
