In Manassas, Virginia, residents and businesses have a third option for broadband Internet access, and it comes at a lower price and without the installation fee and long-term commitment of DSL and cable. What's more, it's delivered over electrical wires, meaning everyone soon will have access to high-speed Internet without availability limitations that plague other technologies.

Bad things happen when ideal IT concepts bump into the realities of imperfect hardware. This time, I'm talking about the slow-motion train wreck of BPL (broadband over power lines), a basically bad idea that's now the subject of a newly launched IEEE standard process.

With lots of people wanting its benefits and few people understanding its drawbacks, BPL seems likely to gain too much momentum to be killed. A win for BPL, though, could be a loss for some valuable applications of the radio spectrum—but you'd never know that there's a serious risk, or even a controversy, if all you saw was the IEEE's cheerful July 20 announcement of IEEE P1675, "Standard for Broadband over Power Line Hardware."

In an age when consumers can choose from 500 TV channels and nearly a dozen phone companies, most who want high-speed Internet access have at best two choices: the local phone company or their cable operator.

Now, another choice may be emerging.

NEWINGTON, CT, Mar 3, 2004--The ARRL has responded to a March 2 Wall Street Journal article, "The Web's New Outlet," that presented a one-sided, rosy picture of Broadband over Power Line while avoiding any mention of its interference potential. ARRL CEO David Sumner, K1ZZ, has faxed a letter to the editor of the New York-based business and financial publication to point out some of BPL's shortcomings, which were largely missing from the WSJ report.

Since last we visited the issue of transmitting the Internet over power lines (the big electric company kind, not the wires in your walls), the Federal Communications Commission, lapdog to the monied interests, has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), the second step in making broadband over power lines (BPL) a reality.

The ARRL Letter, Vol 23, No 08
February 21, 2004


FCC Chairman Michael Powell has assured US Representative Greg Walden, WB7OCE, that the Commission will give "thorough consideration" to all Broadband over Power Line (BPL) studies before it takes final action on BPL. Powell responded February 3 to Walden's January 15 letter requesting that the FCC defer any further action in its BPL proceeding until the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) releases the results of its BPL study and the public has had a chance to comment.

The FCC on Thursday proposed changes to technical rules to foster the development of broadband access over electrical lines. But FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, who supported the technical proposals and questions, says the agency is avoiding some tough questions related to broadband power line (BPL) -- such as how to handle competitive issues and cross-subsidization between a regulated power industry and an unregulated communications business.
