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
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.

It is a curious setup what you describe. So the building, perhaps the city, is
a local network to
you, with a gateway to internet somewhere?


No, I haven't seen such a thing here (Spain).
