Without dragging the list into the sordid details, let me just say that the 
thing that works best about BPL is the marketing.

see the second half of 
http://www.mwrf.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=10753 for a somewhat more 
balanced presentation..


>This morning I heard a story on NPR about Broadband over Power Lines (BPL).
>I only heard part of the report, and it concerned a small town in rural
>Texas that has been able to offer broadband access to all of its residents.
>This town had been unsuccessful at convincing phone and cable operators to
>provide broadband service.
>A side benefit for the town was much more efficient management of the
>overall electrical service (being able to quickly locate a transformer that
>went down, etc.).
