PostSubject: Internet via electrical outlet   Wed Apr 15, 2009 2:55 pm

While in my expeditions in Brazil, I came across an electric company that is testing a new type of modem, one that will allow you to connect to the Internet through your nearest electrical outlet.

The modem is connected to a wire, which, when plugged in, will give you faster-than-broadband Internet. The speed is said to be beyond imaginable. Speed is one thing, but what makes this technology stand out is that it doesn't require anything other than an electrical outlet. When speaking to my cousin here, she said that after you buy the modem, your monthly payments will be combined with your electrical bill. This doesn't sound like much, but it saves you a lot of money when it comes to fees and taxes. I wish I had more info, but the company is kind of hush-hush. I didn't even find out the name of the company that's testing it. All I know is that, if this works, the U.S. is going to copy the technology like it does with everything else.

sounds fake...

keevan, are YOU actually doing traviling?... or are you doing that dramatic thing you do?

and if this is possible, then i would expect there to be a MASSIVE connection to it, if it is indeed possible to connect to the internet with only an electricle connection(to be honest, it sounds fake).

What? Do I have a "dramatic thing" I do? I am actually in Brazil, I have family here. Polar would tell you, but then again he agrees with me no matter what. I saw it in a short column here, and it didn't tell me much, probably because I can't read well in Portuguese Smile I'm a hard-core journalist, and I assure you everything I tell you is true. Except that one time I told you Polar was from Mars. I lied. He's really from Jupiter.

Why would you need to get it installed in all the outlets? Plug in the modem into one, and then put in a linksys if you want.
