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.

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?

Yes, until this month we used VPN to access Internet (connecting to a server
ppp.lan). Now they moved us to PPPoE. In other districts they use NAT, but in
any case all connected to one local network.

You can use the local network for free even if you did not pay for Internet.


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