    I was wondering, with this new adapter which taps on PowerLine Communications, would i have to pay a subscription fee for using the net, besides the electricity it consumes?

    All this does is let you use your existing electrical wiring for a home network instead of having to run new network wiring. Any connections to the internet will still require an ISP and a fee. To be honest I would look at wireless instead of this if you don't want to install network cabling.

    Currently this kit lets you network multiple computers in your house using your electrical wiring instead of having to put in new network wiring. It does not give you internet connectivity, it justs lets you create a home network.

    To connect to the internet you still have to have a cable, DSL, or dialup connection and an ISP. Broadband over power lines is planned in the future, but I think it is only in the testing phase right now with a few places doing trials.
