Now We're Surfing with Gas

You've heard of broadband delivered via electric wires but have you heard of this company that wants to serve broadband and tv by sending wireless pulses of data through our gas pipes? Giga-om wrote about them in may.

I'm just now reading about them in USA today Gas-line broadband a pipe dream?: "Nethercomm, a San Diego-area start-up, says it has developed technology to send lightning-fast broadband and TV services via wireless signals through the pipes that deliver the fuel used to heat homes and fire up stoves."
