Remember Current?

By - December 19, 2005

I first wrote about Google’s investment in Current back in July. There’s new news, thanks to reader Gary. From USA Today:

The utility TXU Corp. said Monday it will offer high-speed Internet service over power lines to several million Texans as part of a $150 million project aimed at improving its ability to monitor the power grid.

The “smart grid” buildout will enable what would be the nation’s largest broadband-over-power line Internet rollout.

The 10-year partnership with Current Communications Group Inc., a privately held company in Germantown, Md., is not, however, expected to yield residental Internet service until the second half of 2006.
