Nelson County, Virginia
While most folks here in northern and western Nelson County, Virginia anxiously await the activation of the BPL internet service that is months and months behind schedule, broadband over powerline is getting attention these days due to enormous amounts of money earmarked in the recent spending/stimulus package approved in congress. Many companies are now jockeying for a piece of the pie. We first told you about IBEC and IBM joining forces here. In the above New York Times article, linked by clicking here, there’s more information on BPL.

Hat tip to Bill Hess of Greenfield for bringing our attention to this article.
