IFindNickNamesAnnoying and Dr D: You are wrong. NB-PLC is well on its way, and selling a lot. And performing like a breeze. Ask in Spain, if you want.

Ditto on the previous comment. There is too much broadband noise in the HF spectrum already. What will this generate when connected to a infinitely large antenna system like the grid.

Please don't let this morph back into another broadband over power lines (BPL) mess. Even 500 Khz is getting a bit high for a network of wires that were designed for 60Hz power distribution. The leakage of unintended noise from BPL systems along with the intrusion of signals from real radio transmitters made that other service bad.
