Manassas Va. Launches City-Wide Broadband-Over-Powerline (BPL)
I received an announcement today from Communications Technologies Inc. (COMTek), the company that owns and operates the broadband-over-powerlines implementation just launched in the city of Manassas, Virginia. The news release is in our TMCnet news feeds and available at:
BPL is somewhat controversial. Amateur radio operators object to unbridled rollout of the technology, as it might interfere with shortwave radio signals. BPL is cited as one of the technologies that can compete with cable and telco broadband rollouts, but some observers are skeptical whether BPL can become useful broadly in the marketplace.
