Fiber Optics


Hey, I'm doing a homework assignment for my networking class. I'm supposed to look up the costs of various network media; however, I can't find the price on one item: a reel of fiber optical cable. Anyone have a link or know how much it costs?

From what I could make up out of my assignment on endoscopes the coherent fibre optics were really expensive. Just the light cable was cheaper. Maybe you can search on a shop that sells the stuff and look at some prices there?
