Here is my favorite quote, Jason:
>But Current Technologies LLC, which offers BPL service in the Cincinnati
and Rockville, >Md., areas, can't find interference caused by its system,
said Jay Birnbaum, the company's >vice president and general counsel.
Current Technologies uses a technology standard >called HomePlug, designed
to not interfere with other radio signals.

>"[Interference] just doesn't exist," Birnbaum said. "They based a lot of
their assumptions on >outdated noise flow analysis."

Yes, the laws of physics are outdated, didn't you hear. I love the way
these guys just make it up as they go along. Probably good for
them, when the BPL bubble bursts, they will all be eminently
qualified for a career in politics.
