Internet Over Powerlines… Again

from the try-try-again dept

Every once in a while you read an article about how people are trying to allow net access over powerlines. But, then you never hear anything more about it. It seems that many past trials never went through, or didn’t last very long. Well, now they’re trying again in Europe. If I remember correctly, though, there were definite technology problems to doing a similar thing in the US. Besides, I thought anything that involved wires was supposed to be dead. What happened to the wireless revolution?
