Powerline Links Up Stonehaven Homes

Posted: 05th Jul, 2003 By: MarkJ
The Press & Journal has reported that SSE Telecom's broadband powerline (hi-speed Internet via power cables) service has physically connected its first customers in Stonehaven:

Neighbours Maurice and Morag Coull, and David and Jennifer Macdonald, are now receiving high-speed Internet access after the first electricity sub-station providing the service was enabled.

The residents were joined by West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine MSP Mike Rumbles, and representatives of Aberdeenshire Council and Stonehaven Business Association, to mark the start of the trial.

Scottish Hydro-Electric has selected Stonehaven, and Winchester in Hampshire, for full-scale commercial trials of the new technology.
