A destructive technique for determining certain optical fiber transmission characteristics, such as attenuation and bandwidth, by performing the desired measurements on a long length of the fiber under test, cutting the fiber under test at a point near the launching end, repeating the measurements on the short length of fiber, and subtracting the results obtained on the short length to determine the results for the residual long length.
