BPL not up to speed
PRINCETON — Though technology for Princeton’s broadband over power lines (BPL) service hasn’t progressed much since it was installed about 10 years ago, it’s still been a good investment for the city, according to Princeton Superintendent of Electric Jason Bird.
At this week’s meeting of the Princeton City Council, Commissioner Ray Mabry, who went on the council in May, asked for an update on the city’s BPL program, especially since learning the city is not taking any new BPL customers.
In response, Commissioner Joel Quiram, who is commissioner for the Public Property Utilities Department, said the BPL technology is no better today than what it was 10 years ago. BPL service is slow, and most of the city’s 220 customers use it primarily for emails, he said.
