Powerline broadband news:

"Amperion's Portfolio of Patents Reaches 35 Granted"
"'Our patents greatly strengthen our leadership position in the Broadband Powerline Industry. Any BPL products operating above 1MHz, and delivering information into the premise rely on basic concepts protected by Amperion's patents,' commented Philip Hunt CEO of Amperion. 'Our patents represent significant value to our corporation, and it is our intention to aggressively protect our intellectual property. By equitably licensing this portfolio, Amperion will support and fuel the continued growth of the Powerline industry.'"

Two articles critical of the City of Manassas, Virginia's decision to deploy broadband over power line (BPL):
"System poses a spectrum of problems"

"New Internet service gives radio users bad vibes"
"City's broadband service over electric lines could disrupt shortwave signals, experts worry"
