Last night I was thinking about the speed of my home network (too slow) wondering about a solution and I find broadband connectivity through my home “electrical circuits”.

No new wiring is needed! HomePlug certified products use your home’s power lines – which are already installed – as a path to send high-speed digital data!

You mean, just use the same power outlet I plug my computer into and it will connect all my computers throughout the house… oh ya! 

And, fast…. around 200 mbps fast!  That’s HDTV and full-blown hi-fidelity audio fast. 

The HomePlug Experience

Imagine: Entering your house, you unpack and plug in your newly purchased flat-panel TV. Simply and quickly – the TV automatically connects to the cable box, the DVD player, the Digital Video Recorder, the Home Theatre system, and also to the Internet.

The member companies of the HomePlug Powerline Alliance are making sure that happen today.

By developing industry-standard specifications for powerline communications technologies, the HomePlug Alliance is focused on building the market for all applications of the technology.

From in-the-home applications – such as sharing High-Definition television programming — to to-the-home applications – such as enabling utility companies to deliver high-speed Internet access to rural areas, powerline communications allows you to plug in, and simply connect!

Lots of affordable HomePlug certified products are available today throughout the world! You can use them to create a fast and secure home network that is available at every power outlet in your home.

Products based on the HomePlug 1.0 and HomePlug AV specifications can bridge an existing networking technology (such as a wireless or Ethernet network) and your home’s power lines.
