DFW: First Major U.S. BPL Rollout

DFW: First Major U.S. BPL Rollout

February 19th, 2006  · stk

In the United States anyway, it's happening sooner, rather than later. Two million customers in the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex will soon have access to "Broadband over Power Line". This technology will provide speeds up to 3 megabits per second through a home's existing electrical sockets, at prices that are anticipated to be less than that of cable or ADSL (Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Lines). This will make every electrical socket both a source of power and a high-speed internet connection.

As a follow-up to an October story, it is interesting to note that the first major U.S. rollout of BPL will be in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, starting later in 2006.

The $10 million dollar project was jointly announced by TXU and Current Communications Group in December. More information can be found in the original article.
