To any user of short wave radio these home plugs are bad news as they are know to effectivly jam the short wave spectrum making it just about inpossible to enjoy reception on the band and there are times when it is not possible to use web radio instead and not every one has access to the internet but would use short wave instead.
Use a eithernet cable for a fraction of price (and thats the fastest connection to cable in street anyway) or set up a network using a proper wireles router instead and dont produce RFI all over the spectrum SWL since 1980 88 & 73's who know what the digits mean oh that will be all the radio hams in the world Good DX'ing too

Mains cables aren't designed for carrying signals because they're not screened. Connecting these wretched things to your home wiring will turn that wiring into an antenna.
As well as the RF polution, there is the amount of electrical energy being consumed to create it. They should be banned.
