You can get a nice standard wireless N router that can go about the same speed for around the same price. I find these things that run "over your power lines" too obscure. I'd rather utilize a widely-used standard.
Have you been eating that sandwich again?

The description says "Up to 85 Mbps" -- almost as fast as a wired Ethernet, and many times as fast as the fastest Internet connections.
Edit: I meant connections to homes in the U.S. Other countries and some businesses can be faster. It is correct that it's not nearly enough to stream uncompressed 1080p. And, yes, Virginia, if you bought all your PCs and switch/router within the past year or 2 (or Macs within 3), and have Cat 6 cabling, you might have Gigabit Ethernet, which is 10x faster. Sheesh.
I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
