Super High Speed Internet Service!!

Here is a company to keep your eyes on, PLC Network Solutions . This is a company that uses a technology called Broadband over Power Lines (BPL). They are a Canadian based company that is provided a bundled service of BPL and Voice Over IP (VOIP). PLC Network Solutions provides speeds starting around 20 MBps for this bundle package, with a break down of prices at $29 USD for the VOiP and about $38 USD for the internet service.

I actually called them up and spoke to a representative a few weeks ago. He said to expect advertising soon and the actual service early next year. This is a good time to enter the cheap high speed internet market since the US is feeling the burn of being having the slowest and most expensive high speed internet service in the world. My cable modem has been clocked at about 3 MBps, while the West, such as Japan for example, have speeds in excess of 5 times the speed that we are accustom to here in the US. Another reason to jump into the market of high speed internet service right now is because Verizon already is. Verizon is beginning to provide a service called FiOS Internet Service . A service that is providing 3 packages of internet speeds at 5, 15, and 30 Mbps at prices varying between $34.95 - $199.95 USD over fiber-optic lines. Right now I have Vonage , a broadband (cable modem only) phone service. I’m charged $25 USD a month for unlimited calls to anywhere in the US. The only problem is that it can only be used with a cable modem. So if Verizon’s FiOS service becomes available in my area before the BPL service is, I will be angry. So hit that website for PLC Network Solutions and give them a call up and see what we need to do to speed up the process and show some interest in the service. I sure did and I can’t wait to get it!
