Worldwide broadband?

Hello fellow ATSers, the following is a bit speculative - what do you think?
I recently purchased a shortwave receiver, and amongst all the weird and wonderful stations I am picking up an interesting signal on approx 6.2 Mhz - sounds machine like, and reminded me of the signal picked up in the movie contact. Itś probably just a data stream so I checked and found it to be a frequency designated for world wide use, that being broadband internet over power lines.

Thats pretty amazing that there is a worldwide standard for this knowing how difficult it is to get countries to agree to any standard at all.

Just think your computer when not dialled up to the internet, or networked in any way could be communicating using this technology!

All that is needed is a power connection - or dare I say it inductive pickup in the case of battery powered devices!!

I imagine the World Order needs a standardized system so they can control the internet and collect the data more easily. Hopefully, I am wrong...I WANT to be wrong...I fear I am not.

Access BPL is just another way of getting Internet service to your house. You still need a modem and a monthly bill.

... unless I'm missing something here.

So whats the highest frequency radio buffs are allowed to use? Am/FM/OTHER

I'm wondering how much data (Internet) could be pushed via one radio channel?

Well, 248,000-250,000 MHz (sub mm band) is available to radio amateurs...

A lot, as the bandwidth is so large!

Add in some compression and "a lot" turns into...a lot more


So, if radio amateurs got together they could do much the same as the mobile internet companies are doing with the phone masts.
PC's would just need a bit of hardware to receive/transmit to the nearest radio amateurs rig.

I wonder why this isn't happening?

They are doing this at the moment in the UK (and i am sure everywhere else in some form) You sign up for TV extras from your internet provider, also supplying digital TV, they give you 2 little power boxes (if the router is further from the TV than a typical Ethernet cable can reach) You plug one end into the TV box, the other into the wall and the other one into your router. It uses the power lines to send the internet to the box. So the TV box, and the router now have two plugs attached to them, ether net into the plug and bingo bango. Tinter'mk'web... Pretty cool

If there is WWW for everyone on the planet i predict productivity decreasing by at least 300%.


Dom1no, i have never heard of that. Its like hart comms where 4-20 is the signal and you have a carrier voltage.

Curious to see how much they are using this back here in the ol' usa.

Against their licence conditions, not every ham has the equipment, there is a perfectly workable mobile internet solution out there,

Well, why don' you set up such a system?
