Actually I was reading in Home Theater Magazine that because optical transmits in light waves, it is the best solution for long runs. analog uses varying voltages which are more prone to data loss and interference. How do you think broadband is transmitted miles from the hub? They all use fiber optics. The only downside to fiber optics would be frailty compared to thick analog cables. They are more prone to minor breaks in the line which could distort the digital signal or sever the light waves completely.
By the way, I am in no means trying to argue with anyone. I'm just posting what I read in that mag.
Fiber optics are also more expensive.
