WASHINGTON, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- International Broadband Electric Communications, Inc. (IBEC), the nation's leading provider of Broadband over Power Lines (BPL) products and services to Rural America, commented on the FCC's National Broadband Plan released today.
Alyssa Clemsen Roberts, Government Affairs Coordinator of IBEC, remarked:
With BPL, customers literally plug into any electric outlet in their home to get broadband service. IBEC holds a number of industry-leading BPL patents. The cost to install BPL is a fraction of installing cable, DSL, or fiber optic solutions in rural areas because BPL relies on long-established and existing electric power lines and infrastructure.
IBEC, Inc. is a full-service provider of Broadband over Power Line Internet access solutions and services, electric utility SmartGrid management and control solutions, and powerline-based security systems. Focused on meeting the broadband needs of rural and underserved America, IBEC is the leading provider of Broadband over Power Line solutions to rural electric utilities and their consumers.
