Residents of a high-rise development in London are set to benefit from a pilot scheme trialling VoIP and IPTV services through wireless broadband connections.

Gallions Housing Association installed wireless broadband in a bid to provide affordable broadband for 150 tenants.

It is hoped that the move will get around the traditional prohibitive expense of providing broadband connections for high-rise buildings.

The system employs Motorola's Broadband over Powerline technology and as well as providing a broadband connection will give residents access to radio, Ethernet, HomePlug and network technologies.

Phase two of the scheme will see CCTV installed, which will also be linked to the broadband network.

Motorola's system was chosen since it does away with the need to install additional software and can be installed simply by plugging a BPL modem into an electrical socket.
