    All this is just to avoid putting fibre down everywhere. Which would have been better idea. Since fibre is ideal for communications. As it can carry alot of bandwidth more reliably than any copper wire. When most homes have poor speed because the phones were put in long time ago and all the copper has rusted affecting the speed. Then power lines are even older. IMHO stop this and put in fibre

    You going to pay for it?

    If it was economically viable to put fibre in everywhere then it'd already be there and Virgin would be making money off it. As it isn't already there (I live in a residential area 2 miles from Manchester city centre and I can't get fibre) that must be because it's not economically viable and you can't make money from it.

    200mbps, will be interesting to see what that really works out at, when my 200mbps powerline adapters struggle to reach 30mbps across 20ft of house.

    I think they may use slightly better technology than the stuff you use at home

    I get your point though.

    Putting in end-point technology to send additional signalling down existing wiring is cheaper than digging up roads to lay new cables *then* putting in the end-point technology to send signalling down the new cables. So (theoretically at least) sending ethernet signalling along existing power cables should be cheaper than putting in new cables (of any kind).
