Now, you may have noticed a banner pop up at the top of the page, what this is about may not be clear to those not familiar with it
This is a link to the Ban-PLT.co.uk website, a site that explains very clearly that PLT devices (made by the likes of Belkin, D-Link, Devolo, and others) cause interference to many radio services, such as broadcast, amateur, marine, aviation, quite possibly emergency services, CB radio, and others.
An example of such a device
These devices have been proven by many radio enthusiasts to wipe out a lot of radio spectrum, in the UK, the regulator, Ofcom, has had many complaints, many remain unresolved, but none of them are gonna sit back and watch Ofcom do nothing and allow these devices to continue to be sold and used, and as such the RSGB (Radio Society of Great Britain) plan to take action
If you are planning on buying a pair of these, then don’t, a WiFi router or proper network cabling can do the same job, if you have a pair of these then the advice is to disconnect them and use the more common WiFi or network cables instead as these will not generate interference.
