The strategy for combatting BPL should be:
1) Regulatory uncertainty
2) Not enough performance to be competitive with other technologies
And perhaps add a third leg -- BPL might work best in densely populated
areas, which are already served by multiple broadband service
providers. In rural areas, high voltage feeders are frequently unbalanced,
above-ground, excellent transmitting antennas. These also happen to be the
areas where police and fire departments are least likely to have upgraded
to less interference-prone systems.
