Re: Dsl ?

It can be spliced but it isn't as easy as splicing regular copper cable. You'd have to determine how much cable was damaged and then the tools for splicing can be expensive. Best bet is to make sure to never break it. Good luck.

Anyone else think its funny that the "latest and greatest" technology(im still talking about fiber optics) is really just a simple as the morse code with a flashlight?I mean thats all fiber optics really are, A thin hallow tube with a flashlight at one end.Obviously its a little more complicated than that, but you get the point.
Yes they can be spliced. The reason that the cable was so expensive is that it is listed as a Mercedes part. I bet you could go to a Co. and have that same cable made for 1/4 of the price. Its like marine products. Spark plug wires for my outboard (they are much shorter than car wires) cost around $12.00 per wire where a set of car wires cost around $20.00 for the whole set.

Thats a good point.They have to justify the high price tag on the car by inflating the part prices.

Thanks for the info, it was one of those things that somebody asked me and I didnt have an answer for them.I never took the time to look it up and only remembered after I saw this thread.
