Simple - Usual Beancounter mentality. If it's there, it's cheaper than
building again.

Why on earth do power companies want to send data signals over power lines
when they own the poles and the right-of-way to string a fiber optic cable
and avoid their own noise and completely avoid the complaints they will
face from interference from BPL/PLC?  Yes, a fiber optic cable will cost
them money for material and labor, but the earning potential from users of
that fiber optic cable would probably generate profit for them.

What am I not understanding?
