The ***ONLY*** technical advantage of Fiber is ***DISTANCE***. Unlike
just about every other media the signal does not degrade measurably for
a great distance - so higher performance lines are possible over
greater distance.

A 1Gbp/s FDX ethernet connection is imperceptibly different than a 1Gbp
/s fiber connection provided the distance is short and the level of EMF
is low. [and there is 10Gbp/s copper now]

Please could you explain that in a little more detail? We don't have
a local server. We see it in being able to work in a google docs
domain. That isn't possible with adsl. Is that an example of what you
are saying? Thanks.

That is not a limitation of ADSL, that is a limitation of *your* ADSL.
Very good performance can be provided by ADSL .... at short distances
using quality cabling and SLAMs.
