Smartgrid meets Broadband

"One trend I believe will pick up steam in 2010 is technologies and alliances that bring the current home broadband infrastructure and the emerging smart grid infrastructure closer together. After all, as more homes embrace high-speed Internet access (wired OR wireless), it makes sense that smart meters and other smart grid devices communicate via what is already in place."

It makes tremendous sense for smartgrid to use the already existing broadband connection instead of inventing a new network.
