Salt Fiber cable

Hello there.
I recently broke my fiber cable while mistakenly confusing it with a power cable and gave it a small pull so the connector just broke off and as such, the light stopped coming out of the end connector. While Salt replaced the cable for free in a Salt store, in the meantime I tried to find a replacement cable, also to have a spare, just in case. This turned out to be very hard due to the specific connectors. Although I did find several cables with similar connector, they were not of the same color and that turned out to be a pain. I knew colors meant specs so I just turned to try and find the right ones. To my surprise it was really hard. I ended up ordering from FS.com and arrived in a couple of days, worked flawlessly. Now, I investigated a bit further and they do have all kinds and best of all, all lengths for that particular cable. So if you find yourself stretching your cable in the living room trying to reach both wall socket and the router, just get a longer cable and keep the other as a spare, just in case. With the fiber, gone are the days I could just pick up another Cat6 cable or a Coax cable and be done with it...
