OK, going with the numbers provided earlier,
if the single-delay length required is
2*10^8m/S * 1Mb / 10Mb/S = 2*10^7m = 20,000km
and we can get
100Gb/S / 10Mb/S = 10,000 (10Mb/S channels)
out of the fibre, then we can reduce the fibre length required to
20,000km / 10,000 = 2 km
Just put the spool of fibre out in the garden...
