More than a million residents of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana will have a new broadband option this month in the first large-scale rollout of broadband over power line (BPL) service, despite concerns that the new BPL technology interferes with other radio frequency devices, including ham radios.

Current Communications Group, a BPL vendor, announced Tuesday it is teaming with Cinergy Broadband, a subsidiary of Cinergy, to roll out BPL service in Cinergy's coverage area by March 15, says Brian Lustig, a Current Communications spokesperson. Current Communications has been conducting small-scale trials of BPL in the Cincinnati, Ohio, and Potomac, Maryland, areas for more than a year.

The rollout follows action by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission in mid-February in which commissioners voted to move forward with a process to measure interference caused by BPL service.
