If the glass was truly "bare" it would be 125um and also be too fragile to handle. What is referred to as "bare fiber" actually has the 250um acrylic coating, probably with color added. It's the barest the fiber can be while still being workable.

That must be it, the "bare fiber" description is a bit misleading in that case though. Strange way to specify the diameter.

That sounds strange to me.

Is there such a thing as PON on multi mode fiber?

I'm looking to possibly do a trial GPON deployment on a leg of my active network, it looks like the FS.com PLC Splitters are 250µm. However, singlemode fiber is usually spec'd at a cladding of 125µm. Are they just using a different measurement or some sort of oddly sized fiber?
