Re: Actual / promise ration and FiOS
said by Skippy25:Fiber does suffer from attenuation and distance limits. Fiber lines must be amplified and repeated at regular intervals. But what Fiber does not suffer from is interference. Fiber interference is so negligible, even over long distances, as to be non-existent.
Because fiber does not suffer from line attenuation like copper does and it has a ton more capacity then copper thus they are not as effected by bandwidth constraints that a copper plant will experience.
