"AT&T has a project called AirGig that sits atop electrical power lines to deliver high-speed signals pole to pole, but it's still in the testing phase.
Called Project AirGig, the wireless technology consists of using traditional power lines to deliver ultra-fast wireless connectivity to a home or handheld device using a special transmitter.
"Project AirGig has tremendous potential to transform internet access globally 6 well beyond our current broadband footprint and not just in the United States," said John Donovan, AT&T's chief strategy officer and group president, in a (http://about.att.com/newsroom/att_to_test_delivering_multi_gigabit_wireless_internet_speeds_using_power_lines.html) statement .
"Project AirGig delivers this last-mile access without any new fiber-to-the-home and it is flexible enough to be configured with small cells or distributed antenna systems," writes AT&T.
The company is also working on AirGig, a first-of-its-kind system that would deliver high-speed internet via a device attached to utility poles.
