The disadvantage would be that it’s slow and it can interfere with emergency services communications [1].In the states to provide customers with broadband access several electric companies created this kind of connectivity so that their customers can connect to the internet, also this gave the companies a better way to manage and control the reliability of their electric grids [3].
