John Carlsen's Address to the Austin City Council Telecommunications Commission
February 8, 2006
Good evening. My name is John Carlsen, an Austin Energy customer in an outlying area yet to be incorporated by the City of Austin. Tonight, I'd like to show my support for high-speed data telecommunication via power lines, commonly referred to as "broadband over power lines" or "BPL".
As a computer technology professional who was attracted to Austin from Silicon Valley, I see the development of Austin's telecommunication infrastructure as absolutely critical to Austin's continued growth and survival.
In the December 19 edition of the Wall Street Journal, I read about a promising BPL pilot program in the Dallas area between TXU Corp. and the Current Communications Group LLC, which is now expanding its availability to more than two million of TXU's power customers.

I'd be happy to answer any questions and to offer assistance in evaluating and implementing a BPL system here in Austin. Thank you for your time.
