Power companies enter the market with fiber and BPL

James Enck signalled Troms Kraft's press release, planning a FTTH network. "Troms Kraft is striving to become a ground-breaking utilities company."

Heise reports that the Open PLC European Research Alliance (OPERA) issued a white paper, defining BPL based on DS2 technology, up to 200 Mbps.

New competition in the physical layer is coming, from both cities (fiber, wifi, wimax) and utilities (fiber, bpl).
