Broadband out of an eletrical outlet?

Yes, its true. I need a “Devil’s Advocate”. I’m doing some research in the
subject since I see that the Broadband Holders (BDH) has been en fuego
So far, I’ve uncovered that both Google and Goldman Sachs (a.k.a. “smart
money”) have invested over $100 million in this project. Utility company
Cinergy (CIN) has customers already using the service.
"Cinergy Broadband, a subsidiary of Cinergy, has partnered with Current
Communications Group to offer broadband over power line (BPL) services
to residential electric customers (through Current Communications), and
to municipal and electric co-operative utility markets (through ACcess
Broadband). With BPL technology, customers can receive high-speed
Internet access (3x faster than DSL) by plugging a small modem into
virtually any electrical outlet in their home."
Existing electricity utility infrastructure would not need extensive
modifications to support BPL and in some cases it may not need any
modification at all. BPL has not yet attained wide deployments in the U.S.,
but other countries have attempted to deploy it with varying results.
Maybe someone knows of a pure play for this theme. I know that Cisco
and NetGear are involved. Thanks,
Jabil Circuit is an OEM for devices like this. Cisco is their
largest client. I know a majority of their business is printed
circuit boards. Their symbol is JBL. They are not a pure
play for electrical broadband, but their parts are in Cisco routers ( I
am sure they deal with other router makers ), but I can see cisco
selling more routers if electrical broadband catches on. I have
heard for a year or so that braodband internet through powerlines was
the next big thing. I am sure that some of JBL’s parts would be
going into the modems you are talking about. IMO they are the
industry leader of printed circuit boards, but not a pure play for
The idea has been around for some time. I first read about it in 2000. The problem to implimentation then was they had to “jump” the transformer to get the signal from the high voltage lines down to the household lines. Which required a “truck roll” to set up 10 or so houses.
