First I wrote an email about BPL, thet tossed it, but there a few things that the list might want to know. First, Boradband over power lines (BPL) is placing a radio signal (RF) on the power lines. A very old technology. The electric company in Canada has been doing it for some time, but at a very low data rate, and using frequencies below the AM broadcast band. Our BPL is a plan to use medium voltage and low voltage lines to bring broadband into the home. There are two major problems: 1. Cost. The RF energy cannot cross a transformer. It also gets weaker as it goes down longer lines. This requires electronics...repeaters, and cost. I have read that BPL is not economically viable in rural areas. Read Western MA. 2. Lots of energy "leaks" from the power lines. This causes radio interference. The interference is worse in radio and TV station weak signal areas, because the signals are weak. Again read Western MA. The leakage signal is also broadband. It covers a lot of spectrum. Should you like to watch channel 5 from Boston, you might not. A BPL transmission from a line going past your house would have a good chance of covering it up. AM radio might take a big hit. But who listens to AM? Shortwave radio? Forgetaboutit. Someone mentioned 90 Mbps in the future. That means that the main part of the transmission would have to be at 90 MHz as a very minimum. I don't believe that's possible on our power lines. And it would radiate 90 MHz energy, interfering with 88.5 MHz in the fringe areas. I like WFCR. Jim Ussailis jim at nationalwireless.com PS Motorola has a different system. BPL on medium voltage lines, and fiber or WiFi to the home. Makes a lot more sense, but still costs lots.
