Howard Dahdah, of PC World, reported this week that Canberra telecommunications provider TransACT is to commence a trial of BPL.

Dahdah reports: "TransACT CIO and general manager Carsten Larsen said the company is looking at delivering the Broadband over Power Lines (BPL) service to office buildings, because many of the houses and medium-density units in Canberra and Queenbeyan already have TransACT's fibre cables running past them".

"The first test site for the service, which will deliver download speeds of 200Mbs on a shared network, will be TransACT's own head office, Larsen said. "The engineering is being drawn up. If we go from here to a connected environment, we can take the lessons from here to a live site. "We have to feel all the bumps and problems with it. But we will give it a push and see if it works."

Should the trial prove successful, TransACT propose a commercial rollout later this year.
