BB PLC can approach 100's of MB's. Most of the standards are OFDM based, so there is an underlying commonality in the modems. However, the specifics and the other tecchniques applied to achieve the specific objectives make them quite different.

Is Broadband PLC using different modulation technique? (in the range of Mbps)

The speeds of OFDM based narrowband PLC transcieves are in the 20-200KBytes/s range,depending on the distance, channel quality, etc. The main applications for this class of modems is monitoring and control of power connected equipment. More specifically: Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), Street Light Control (SLC), Smart Home, etc. In contrast Broadband PLC technologies are designed to carry much higher throughput (video, Internet) inside the home at very short distances.

This is very interesting concept as I believe using wireless might be more expensive than PLC. However, one question is what are the typical speeds using this technique and possible applications?
