Powerlines are 60 Hz.  He said anything under 200 MHz is OK, so that
should be a non-issue.  (Assuming there isn't any
broadband-over-powerline system in his area, at least.)

I thought that it was a higher frequency (as well as voltage) up to
the transformer.  Maybe I'm wrong...

I can't say you're wrong, but I can say that changing voltage is easy, requiring a simple transformer; changing frequency is a bit harder and would require some additional circuitry; I can't see the power companies bothering to change the frequency; I see no advantage to it.
