The Telco Energy Home Is Coming … For Real This Time

Gigaom: A little more than a year ago, I predicted in an article for GigaOM Pro (subscription required) that telcos and cable providers would start dabbling in energy management before the ball dropped into 2010. The idea was that the service providers could use their networks (fiber, cable, cellular) to connect with smart appliances, plugs, meters and thermostats in homes and create a sort of broadband-enabled smart energy efficient home.

The story is too old to be commented.
