Matsushita Electric Industrial has figured out how to do away with all the Ethernet cables and the hassle of hooking up to a wireless network device, reports the AP on Yahoo News. Today, the Osaka-based company announced that is has come up with technology to use electric wiring to relay not just electricity but also data.

The technology has been around for some time — including in the United States — but Matsushita’s system is unique because it delivers fast-speed broadband information at up to 170 megabits per second, which is faster than Ethernet.
