Well yes, we've all been there, but that's not quite what is meant

Then what does? It was already in the mid-90s (96-98) when some people
were already able to connect Internet over Ethernet this was dependent
on whether their building is already connected.

So the difference is only in fiber optics? Optic cable is an Ethernet
technology nothing more than 10 Mbit/s card. The provider uses those
technologies which he considers economically viable. This does not impact
end-user as optic cable anyway does not reach apartments, and possible even
separate buildings. Currently in each building there is a hub with several 100
Mbit/s ports and at least two 1 Gigabit/s ports (one of them used for uplink
to the provider and the other is in reserve). The Gigabit ports may be copper
or optic or support the both cable types.

This does not make any difference for a end-user.
