Hydro-Québec is testing a high speed Internet access service that they plan to offer over their existing power grid. A similar service is offered by Scottish Hydro-Electric, but another company went out of business trying to do the same thing in Germany. Critics claim that Internet signals on the power lines will interfere with television and radio reception. Hydro-Québec maintains that there will be no interference. If the tests go well, the service might be available in a few years.
