Re: Internet thru power lines?

Hi Robin,

This technology would probably not be much different than DSL.  Very good
at noise filtering and control...  One advantage is that the equipment
would be designed to withstand greater voltage spike and fault conditions
which would "harden" such a system against Tesla coils.  Another advantage
is that pole transformers would have to be retrofitted with a way to get
the signals past them.  Hopefully, that means replacing the pole pigs and
selling them off as scrape to anyone that wants them :-)))

However, there will be problems with having a TC and Eithernet plugged into
the same outlet...  Best to wait till they work out the bugs there...
