HomePNA claims top N.A. telcos

Canadian telco Telus recently became the latest North American telco to adopt HPNA 3.1 technology for home networking, and with that commitment, four of the five largest telcos in North America have chosen the 3.1 standard, according to the HomePNA Alliance.

Steve Rago, principal analyst at iSuppli Corporation, said that more service providers in North America now use HPNA, capable of 320 Mbps bandwidth, for home networking than other coaxial cable home networking solutions. Still, industry observers have noted in the past that carriers are likely to continue to use a variety of home network technologies, depending on what different deployment cases require.
