BPL has made a splash in one Texas city, thanks to the help of a DBS platform.

Last week, the Dallas Morning News reported that Liberty Media-backed Current has equipped nearly 130,000 homes in the area to receive its BPL (broadband over powerline) service. DIRECTV has started marketing to about half the homes, the newspaper reported.

The service sells for $20 a month for 1.5 Mbps of speed and $35 a month for 8 Mbps of speed.
