I searched the internet and it shows, that with OM3 and
GigaBit you can have only 150m.  10GBit is limited to 35m.

If you have OM4, then GBit is 550m and 10GBit 150m

OM4 would alow me to increase the 100Base-FX to 2km,
while OM3 allow me up to 550m which is in my range
since my Farm is not bigger except at the End of the
Forest where "Nobody was gone before".   ;-)

Would be a 5 year voyage with heavy djungle equipment.

Have a nice weekend
