Optical fiber router picture

Optical fiber router data capacity

My ISP provide around 30 Mbps speed which is far greater than my office internet speed (6Mbps), so I was curious to know how he is able to provide me huge bandwidth, this made me to open the router box and investigate the connections, I was amazed to see that one single optical fiber string (size of human hair) is carrying the data, awesome technology. Now I can understand why we left the copper wires technology. Attaching the router box picture, there are 4 optical fibers, out of which 3 are made dummy, only one is connected to the router.
