Q: I have heard that "broadband over powerline doesn't work". Or that it's slow. Is that true?

A: Those criticisms, often from persons with conflicts of interest, were of previous BPL technologies, not current 2011 ones. IEEE P1901 does up to a gigabit currently and is standardized worldwide. Longer term the "E-line" powerline networking technology may do much more and work between the poles.

Q: In what order should we think about moving towards any of these standards?

Q: If I have a community electric distributor, what should they know?

A: See unified district utility business plan

Q: What should my larger regional distributor (incumbent utility) know/do?

A: See incumbent utility policy
