Given the large number of homes in this country with cable or DSL connectivity, why aren't electric utilities already providing these services if they represent such a compelling opportunity? Cable+HomePlug or DSL+HomePlug is indistinguishable from BPL for this purpose.
a) I'm not persuaded this is such a compelling opportunity for companies that seem to have their hands full just keeping the lights on.
b) I wouldn't expect them to do the service thing if it meant having to use other people's wires to pass the signals back and forth.
c) Hopefully this is all moot, as WiFi and WiMax-based distribution fills the rural infrastructure gap.
