I was actually reading something similar, I bought some cables and then found this post I believe I also read the difference betweens the fiber cables there.
As long as you run a network tester and the cable is perfect, and the cable is legitimate and actually meets the requirements of cat 6 & cat 6a cable, then it will be able to handle the specs stated in the post above.

Fiber is only useful when you either want to send data a long distance that exceeds the common 90m cable run (10m patch cords) of copper, or you want to link device to devise so for most home networks and most enterprise networks, cat 6a is more than enough.
