If fiber technology is a measure of IQ my wife is Einstein.
What was the bandwidth of their fibre? Maybe its not in the glass but the solid state stuff.
I distinctly remember reading in the daily readfile when I was stationed overseas in 1979 that the Army at Fort Knox was testing fibre technology for durability by running tanks over the cables. And the truth finally comes out now that it was fibre technology from forty thousand years ago? Amazing!
