If you think you have the fastest Internet connectivity around, just wait for Powerline Networking to take hold. Belkin is anticipating the successful future of this technology by introducing its new Gigabit Powerline HD Starter Kit which promises ultra-fast Gigabit speeds up to 1000Mbps through your home’s existing electrical wiring. That's more than fast enough for online gaming, HD entertainment, and high-quality transmission of multiple video streams. It works by plugging one end of the adapter into a wall outlet, and the other end to the Ethernet port (RJ45) of a gaming console, set-top box, or computer.
The Belkin Gigabit Powerline HD Starter Kit is now available in North America for $149.99, and it hits Europe in early August.
