Where on their site do you find that it will work in non metallic pipes?

From their website, their UWB technology is said to work in either metallic
or non-metallic gas lines, and the main advantage is the very low noise
floor environment within the pipe.  However, after looking at all of the
stuff posted, it all looks more like an investment scheme than an actual
product ready for deployment.

Just my opinion, but then I thought the same thing about broadband over
power lines, and I was proven wrong there now that it has been rolled out
nationwide.  (Tongue firmly planted in cheek.)
