A Billion times faster?
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

August 20, 2009: Had enough of all this fun and cycling? Then how about this news story just received from a company called Billion? It's a nice step forward ... if you're into such techie stuff!

Its headline reads 'Billion has launched the first UK wireless N Homeplug AV 200 Mbps wall plug Ethernet adapter.' Yawning yet? Well don't, because wireless N is the next generation WiFi and if you're streaming video and music round your house, or gaming, or doing anything that needs fast throughput or better range, this should interest you.

N is not quite standardised, but will be soon. Homeplug lets you use the mains wiring as a network so the combination of a high-speed 'N' access point and a Homeplug adapter could be quite potent. It's great for larger homes, garages, outbuildings, or where the thickness of the walls limits wireless coverage. Check out the Billion web site .
