We have a leased line at work currently on 100/100 but looking to move to 1000/1000 and what we are not clear on as we have more fibres that were blown at the same time in our comms room then could one of them be lit and we use that for the 1000/1000 or do we need another set of fibre blown for the larger bearer?
Been speaking to different providers and none of them seems certain as apparently, we can't take advantage of some of the deals on offer due to the length of the duct which I find a bit odd as we have fibre already here. However, when the guys from Openreach blew the fibre in the first place I was told it's always the same fibre blown so it shouldn't make a difference. I realise this would likely be sorted in the site survey but just wanted some clarity beforehand if anyone knows?
Essentially what is the difference between the 100 and 1000 bearer? I get that they support a different max speed but where is that difference in terms of limits? At the Carrier end so that one of their 1G ports is split to 10x100 bearers? or somewhere else? Does anyone know and care to tell me? I'd be very grateful.
