Standard local networking rates have been faster than connections to the 
internet for many years, but fibre is slowly being laid around the UK so the 
internet is starting to catch up. I assume that sooner or later local 
networking will move on from Cat 5 or Cat 6 to all local fibre networks, 
prompted by whatever equipment suppliers choose as a standard. Is there any 
sign of this happening, and which standards are being considered?
I have been viewing websites such as millsltd.com and farnell.com, both able 
to supply multiple varieties of fibre and connectors, but I am interested to 
know about any prospective standard, rather than which hardware might be 
available to adapt between different types.
