Internet Over Power Lines Is Coming

Broadband over Powerlines.

AT&T Inc has started trials in Georgia state and a non-U.S. location to deliver high-speed internet over power lines.

AT&T aims to eventually deliver speeds faster than the 1 gigabit per second consumers can currently get through fiber internet service using high-frequency airwaves that travel along power lines.

“Potentially, it can be a really big deal,” said Roger Entner, an analyst at Recon Analytics. “You need the power company to play ball with you. That’s the downside.”
