Electricity ''pipes'' to deliver high speed net


Google has invested ( besides media titan Hearst and bankers at Goldman Sachs ) in broadband-over-powerline company. I wonder why smart money is chasing these technologies ? I heard somewhere that the biggest value of those systems lays in their ability to efficiently manage power grids. Not delivering broadband.
As CNET wrote about the deal for delivering such a service:
Under its relationship with most power companies, Current runs the service, bills the customers and collects 100 percent of the revenue. Power companies, in return for use of their grid, receive payments from Current.


Another broadband-over-powerline partnering project is located in northern Texas.

UPDATE:

IBM enters BPL deal as well. Interesting.
