Internet Over Powerlines

The lamestream media told you:
Manassas, Virginia is the first city in the country to bring broadband Internet access to the public through standard three-pronged power lines used in all modern homes. Surprise, Arizona is now the second city to adopt the technology, which could bring web access to the entire public, including the unfortunate poor, at little or no cost.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
The centralization of Internet Service Providers (ISPs), through heavily government-regulated power companies, is another step in the direction of government dominance over the web, which continues at a frightening pace along multiple strategic fronts.

Admitting that thousands of independently operated ISPs complicates the job of controlling the web, the move to "free" delivery along A/C power lines is an important tactic, says one industry observer who prefers to not be identified.

Currently, anyone can set up as an ISP with little more than a home computer, in the highly unregulated world wide web.
