Abstract

This study discusses a new technology called Broadband over Power Lines
(BPL) technology that utilizes the electricity power lines for the internet use or
broadband. The discussion is on the awareness of Malaysians about the
technology and its standard. Since this is a new technology in Malaysia, a few
approaches is applied in order to acquire data and technical information by
interviewing personnel that have relation with the technology, gathering
information from the Internet, IEEE Journals, books, magazines and keep track
with the latest news on power line technology through newspaper. From the
research, we acknowledged that the level of awareness of broadband over
power lines is still low but the expectations and the acceptance of BPL are very
high. The result also shown that BPL is more effective and the performance is
beyond our first impression when we aware about BPL than the formal
broadband. The main constraint In conducting this research is difficulties in
obtaining the real data and technical information since the technology is not yet
been implemented in Malaysia. But once the technology is being implemented in
Malaysia, hopefully by the next year, our Information Society that hunger for a
high speed Internet connection will enjoy the features offered by the technology.
