Data over Power Line AND Interference
 
this is really a "bee in the bonnet" topic for ham radio types as exemplified in the editorials in QEX and Electronics World. If you think there is crud on the power line coming into your home now, watch as the electric utilities try to gather some market share from DLS and fiber. Mbe someone should tell them that a power line is an antenna, not a transmission cable.

We already have that in some parts of Sweden, or at least
there were experiments where people could get broadband
connections over the mains. I did read once, though, that
a similar large-scale experiment in Britian was eventually
terminated because of too many complaints from ordinary
power customers. Don't remeber exactly what the major
problems was, but I think it was very noticeable, like flicker
in the streetlights and light bulbs at home etc.

Maybe some of our british friends can tell more about that
project?
