Has anyone use fiber optic interconnects in their computers? I read an article suggesting that this is the way to go to move data really quickly, and it got me interested.

My google search's have primarily just resulted in company's trying to sell connectors, etc. etc....

Any actual projects would be great.

Thanks,
pud

My ISP is Verizon, which uses fiber optics in its connections up to my house.

Are you routing the incoming fiber optic line through a fiber optic router or module?

I don't know the answer. The router is supplied by Verizon and I don't know how to get the details you are asking about.

Also my in house wiring is not fiber optic - it is standard (?) cable.
