Yes, somebody's been experimenting with a broadband connection over wet string, and they managed to get 3.5mbps.

If this was April 1 i'd be sceptical, but, no, they got it working.

There's no intention to make this a commercial project.

Now all they have to do is make it possible over ordinary plumbing, which would include many rural areas from the get go.

This would actually make sense, considering that much of the stuff on the Internet is crap anyway...

Would not work in my Neck of the Pipes, too many old-timers pushing old-dirty-dipers and such down the pipe; based on a real life experience of witnessing a neighbors grandpa trying to flash-down a spoiled bucket of "Sweet Italian Sausage With Penne Pasta" down a John, True Story.
