    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."

    OMG, not another bunch of power utility execs befuddled by a
    fundamentally flawed technology.
