Broadband over power line grid called Broadband Power Line (BPL) communication that provides internet access over any ordinary power line. A laptop or any other computing device can be plugged into any power outlet (by use of BPL modem) in building to get access to high speed internet. The main advantage of use of BPL system over power line is to utilize the existing infrastructure of power line networks. This means great savings in wiring (cost-effective) and providing internet to customers in rural area where cannot receive cable modem or any other internet services. However, power-line systems are not designed for transferring data signal. In this paper different issue facing channel properties of BPL system will be discussed. There are some factors influencing transfer function of BPL system. The main focus of this study is to assess the effects of varying the branch’s length. The success of this research would be a great forward step towards implementation of BPL system. The Integrated Development Environment (IDE) used in this study is MATLAB
