That’s not how I read it.  It clearly says by using High Frequency (HF)
airwaves that travel along power lines.

Sure sounds like BPL!

This is not BPL, they are just mounting radios above the power space on
utility lines. They are not modulating any signals over the power grid.

Thank You,

Honestly? Can't kill this zombie? I thought fibre to the home was finally
going to put this one to bed - you can push far more bandwidth down a glass
pipe than a copper one anyway, with far less interference to OR FROM people
like us, emergency services, radio astronomy, etc, not to mention better EMP
resiliency.

Perhaps FTTH isn't easy enough to wiretap?   :-(
