Anacortes using water pipes to deliver high-speed internet
Fascinating, Randy. And the freaking Brits came up with the idea!
Pretty cool. I wonder if there's any effect on water pressure during high water usage times(?)
No, but loud audio passages may sound like they're underwater.
They probably should look at Australia's NBN network.

It's similar but it uses the phone network
Those damn Brits are resourceful indeed. Brilliant! I say Brilliant!
That's brilliant! No digging needed, no mess, no high dollar investment.
I also remember reading several years back experimentation done with using electrical lines coming into houses and businesses. Apparently, they haven't worked out all the kinks yet though - Powerline Broadband Internet In the United States at a Glance
That's why the NBN network works here in Australia. You don't have those issues like you would if you were just with your normal broadband telco.
I used to be with Telstra bigpond. They were great but for the life of me they used the powerlines and some of them were faulty.
Now it's better with NBN because they go underground and it's better.
How would a shut-off valve work with a cable/wire running through it? Does the cable exit and than re-enter the water line whenever a valve is in the line? Am I missing something?
They shut off the water at the treatment plant! No seriously, they must have by-pass around the shut off ball valve.
LOL, cool, just seems like a lot of work...
