    No matter how hard you push and no matter what the priority, you can't increase the speed of light.
    That reminds me of when our college IT teacher tryed telling me that "they are developing a medium faster than fibre optics"

    No matter how hard i tryed he just wouldnt accept that you cant get faster than the speed of light. What made it more bizarre is that he (sortof)understood the concept of a line being "wider" so that wasnt his mistake.

    My college experiance was a rather wasted time as you may have guessed.
    You can get optical multiplexers that carry multiple data signals concurrently over a single fibre, so in that respect you could get more data through a single fibre than you might think!

    We were using some very expensive multiplexed fibre links between a couple of mainframe sites on a project I worked on way back in 2000-2001.

    The multiplexer used difraction gratings at each end to merge/split the light. The box at each end cost £250k, the client had multiple multiplexers at both sites. The long term plan was to replace the difraction gratings with some form of silicon that would do the same job at a fraction of the cost......

    I've always found telepathy to be quickest ... unfortunately there is not a standard out there for it so I have to keep turning it off except for when I am at home.

    add-drop multiplexers are used extensively in WAN backbones and with technologie ssuch as DWDM fibre service providers can utilise multiple wavelengths to support concurrent data streams on singlemode fibre. It's expensive and hi-tech gear but is essential in service provider MANs and WANs.
