Does heat affect fibre optics?
Not the equipment it is plugged into, but the actual cable itself?
Yep, it can. If it got hot enough then it would melt, but I don't expect that you'll be heating up to the same sort of level thata fusion splicer would?
No not that sort of heat, basically the cable runs through some trunking in our grarage where all our Air Con extractors blow out the warm air, so the garage can get very very warm, possibly about 40 - 50 degrees in the excess heat.
nope, in fact if its LSZH or plenum cable then its designed to go exactly where you have it.
Indeed as already mentioned there is no problem with the Fiber and heat at all.
Have you got a 100mbps internet connection in your house or something?
