I've tried them and had mixed results.  It depends on the building and on 
the power from the power company.

I've had much better results with 802.11 using an access point and a 
bridge on the far end.  The bridge can even use a directional antenna if 
you need just a little more reach.  They're not too expensive - certainly 
less expensive than the outdoor cable - and they work pretty well.

The primary requisite for any new tax law is for it to exempt enough
voters to win the next election.
