Back in the early to mid 2000's here they were trying BPL, I know some of the local amateurs kicked up about it and it was stopped. Now we have the MTM NBN, those of us who have fibre are in a much better position than those who don't.
We are in rural SW England and
have overhead power and telephone lines,
the latter swamping HF reception with VDSL outspew.
Recently, a new
11kV-230V transformer was installed in the adjacent field.
Even before our houses were
re-connected, QRM jumped up to about S6-7.
In the 8 hours without mains
power, noise was S1.

their digger shovel through our water-supply pipe...)
