Broadband via power lines seen more feasible

A top technical executive at the Federal Communications
Commission said the idea of delivering broadband Internet access
over utility lines is beginning to look possible. Two power
providers are testing the technology that has support from a
trade group including EarthLink and 11 utility companies. Edmond
Thomas, chief of the FCC's Office of Engineering and Technology,
said, "It's starting to look like a very viable technology.
We're very excited." The FCC wants to make sure that mixing
high-speed access with electricity doesn't produce signals that
interfere with other devices, the Associated Press reported.
