FO has been given as the panacea for everything in the future but hasn't
ally been adopted by manufacturers because of the high cost when compared
ith cable. When you can buy 305 metres of CAT5e for circa =A330 and need
'special' tools or training to terminate then it will be a while before FO=
comes into its own...

An empty conduit will allow that FO to be installed in the future. Even
hin the FO world there are several types and materials so it would be
cult to predict which one will be adopted for the Domestic environment.

I think it is quite telling that if you want to extend the latest Media
erface (HDMI) it is done with two CAT5e cables, the i/f will cost you just
under =A3400 though...

'wonder what cable would be required for digital video distribution ...=20
what would have enough bandwidth to cover future possibilities ... I=20
suppose teh answer could be fibre optic ... ie: an empty conduit, for now ?
