Broadband-on-Power-Lines experiments:

Atlanta, GA    - (soon) Southern Company

If you live near these, google search your area to find out where and go
drive around and see what you hear..  Here are some other things to search

If you find other areas advertised, send me an UPDATE to this list..

> See:  http://www.currenttechnologies.com/ :  What is PLC?
> Powerline communications (PLC) technology uses the existing local electric
> wires to provide digital communication services such as high-speed Internet
> access, voice over IP (VoIP), video, and in-home networking.
> But even skeptics say this year's planned broadband rollouts could be a
> watershed. "If they go well, you'll see a lot of utilities joining the
> bandwagon," says Brett Kilbourne, director of regulatory affairs for United
> Telecom Council, which represents 850 power companies that also offer
> telecommunications services.
