Nearly 10,000 homes in and around the city of Grand Ledge, west of Michigan’s capital, Lansing will soon be part of a Broadband over Powerline (BPL) pilot project that is being developed by utility.net, a LA-based BPL network services provider.
The broadband service will be offered at three speed tiers – 768 Kbps symmetrical, 1.5 Mbps symmetrical and 3.0 Mbps symmetrical – and will be offered over Consumers Energy’s lines. If you happen to live in that area, let us know when the service goes live and what kind of speeds you are actually getting. I personally remain pretty skeptical about BPL and all the claims around it. (PR Newswire)
