We investigate the use of impulsive ultrawide band (I-UWB) modulation over medium voltage (MV) power line channels for low data rate communications. In particular, we consider a MV network where a channel measurement campaign has been carried out. In this paper, we firstly describe the MV test network. We study the statistics of the MV channels in terms of both root-mean-square delay spread (RMS-DS) and average channel gain (ACG). Then, we investigate the performance of I-UWB modulation with
