check to see if you are able to get the internet from your power company which means over the powerlines.

Scott,

I am actually very close to a current deployment from but they curently do not have service available to my home. After they expand and reach my home, do you believe that BPL should be a serious consideration as my primary ISP or possibly a secondary choice (for use with a Dual WAN router)?

I did look at the pricing scheme prior to the post so I should have specified better that I was more interested in the technology itself. Are there any specific ("low hanging fruit" if you will) pros or cons when compared to Cable or DSL?

For instance Cable is often easier to set up than DSL but since it is a shared bandwidth medium Cable performance will degrade if multiple users on the same node are using the connection at the same time, while this is not a concern with DSL. Also, I know that if you split your cable line several times before your connection to your Cable "modem" there can be a significant signal loss (if you aren't using proper splitters).

Does BPL suffer from any similar limitations or overcome any of these? Since this is the first time I've ever really investigated this specific technology, please feel free to let me know if I need to clarify any of my questions or assumptions.

Thanks again.
-Evan

I think I *might* just understand the point you're trying to make, if I read between the lines enough. <g>

IMHO, it sounds like we need the services of the greatest engineer ever, Montgomery Scott of Star Trek fame.

There isn't any problem that man can't fix. <g>

Thanks for the input Scott.
