Internet Through Power Cable

Although I can't read those funny symbols, the range is usually pretty limited on power line networking ... so although they may be good for in home or small networks, I don't think they provide any viable alternative to DSL or coaxial cable broadband ... as far as I know.
And in the in-home and small networks area, wireless is taking over everything ... especially with new standards like 802.11g boasting around 54 Mbps data rates, but also because it's so much easier to setup, manage, and use ... not to mention the "wire-less" aspect of it which allows more mobility

Its cool technology has been around for a while. CIA used it to transfer data during the soviet times. Several providers in US have this but has little chance to successfully compete against phone companies. VERIZON, SBC are slowly switching to fiber. POE technology has its limitations.
