AT&T tests broadband over powerline in AirGig project

Wednesday 21 September 2016 | 08:25 CET | News
AT&T announced a new test of broadband over power lines called Project AirGig. The US operator said this technology will be easier to deploy than fibre, can run over licence-free spectrum and can deliver fast wireless connectivity to any home or handheld wireless device. Initial testing of the services at AT&T outdoor facilities has been positive, and the operator plans to start the first field trials in 2017 "at the right global location".
