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.
