More info on DVI, the BPL operator in Penn Yan, New York

Yesterday I posted a news item that a company known as Data Ventures Inc. was preparing to conduct a power line broadband (or broadband over power line - BPL) trial in Penn Yan, New York. There was little information on DVI, as noted by several people posting on the message board for their article on the story. In response, DVI's President, Joe McCoy, posted the following:

"DVI is a Nevada Corporation that is headquartered in Florida and has established a NOC in Rome, NY. The company is focused as a broadband service provider and has received funding to do so (not quite as creative as some of the sources listed in error, but perhaps we could negotiate something). The company currently has business trials planned with 4 utilities and funds up to 100% of the deployment. DVI is technology independent but however has chosen to utilize Amperion BPL equipment as the technology of choice. DVI is pioneering BPL through such leading partnerships. Look for DVI Broadband to be coming to your community."
