Sorry if this question sounds stupid, I'm not really good with this, but...
I have a fiber optic cable from my ISP and I found out it has a pretty deep cut that exposes the interior, and I've recently learned that fiber optic cables use lights transmitted from the computer (signals) to the ISP's servers or whatever, in Physics class at school, and I thought that some of the lights may have been escaping through that cut, making my random lag happen.
Is this possible? I've recently covered the cut up with a ton of layers of scotch that you can't see through and I'm wondering if that will improve my latency.
Also light can't pass through that scotch, I've tested it with a flashlight.
