This is not BPL, they are just mounting radios above the power space on utility lines. They are not modulating any signals over the power grid.

Thank You,

Honestly? Can't kill this zombie? I thought fibre to the home was finally going to put this one to bed - you can push far more bandwidth down a glass pipe than a copper one anyway, with far less interference to OR FROM people like us, emergency services, radio astronomy, etc, not to mention better EMP resiliency.

Perhaps FTTH isn't easy enough to wiretap?   :-(
