Broadband Over Power Line (BPL)

Broadband over power line (BPL), the technology that allows a channel of data to flow alongside the electrical feed into homes and businesses will be the hot item this year.

In north America, almost every company will try to exploit this new technology; and it has already started. I am sure our local electric coops in the Philippines will take advantage of this technology, and join the prey towards delivering internet connections to homes apart from electricity. So the government should hold on selling the Power Transmission Company in the country…at least for year, so that they can get a better return, o diba?


By midnext year, I predict Samsung or whoever comes first in the market, will market a monitor cum telephone/tv i.e., you can call and see who you are talking one channel on your TV – this will be the next landline I guess – but passing through the power line and no longer the telephone line. Neat diba?

Another is internet connection will drop more next year by around 40%. With DSL, Cable, Wifi, Wimax, and BPL as options to connect to the internet. And a bill would be filed in Philippines Congress to regulate BPL. Yan….ay kong hindi tayo ba bagal bagal hehehe.
