Gas pipeline broadband?

Well, I’ve been scratching my head this week trying to find something useful and interesting to catalog on these pages. It’s been a busy week, so I have not had a chance to digest many of my RSS feeds…however, I just stumbed across this fascinating article. Broadband data service (up to 100Mb, which is really broadband, not the 200Kb that the FCC claims to be broadband) over natural gas pipelines! I am really hopeful that we’ll be able to solve the last mile problem. Cable access is good (and much more available than DSL), WiMax and ethernet over power lines are promising, but the more options we have, the more price pressures to keep data rates high and monthly fees low.
