Scottish Hydro-Electric has announced the availability of high speed broadband Internet services via electricity sockets. Yes folks, that’s 2Mbps broadband Internet access from any room that has a power socket.
This kind of PowerLine technology has been talked about for a while, but last I heard it was not feasible because of the radio interference and emissions problem. Looks like they have it sorted now though. Mind you it is only a ‘trial’ so don’t start dumping the old ADSL modem quite yet.
