Using an edge-emitting LED source, 140 Mbit/s was transmitted over 30 km of single-mode fibre. No penalty in receiver sensitivity due to chromatic dispersion was observed. The product of data rate and distance, 4.2 Gbit/skm, is the highest reported for loss-limited transmission over single-mode fibre using an LED source.
