Gas pipes to deliver 100Mbps broadband Internet?

Posted on Saturday, November 12 2005 @ 12:11:15 CET by

Nethercomm, a San Diego based company, has found a way to transmit data at broadband speeds through natural-gas pipes. They claim it is possible to offer up to 100Mbps to every home with this technology.

However, there's a major caveat. the company hasn't got working products and has not tried the technology in the field yet.
"When I first heard about it, it seemed pretty outrageous," said Joe Posewick, president of EN Engineering, an engineering firm that helps natural gas companies build distribution facilities. "But the more we talked to Nethercomm and other experts in the industry, the more we realized that it could be a viable technology that could revolutionize the natural-gas industry.

"Of course, we have to see if it really works," Posewick added. "There's been no proof of concept yet."
Read on over at CNET to learn more about how it works.
