We performed 10 Gbit/s optical soliton transmission experiment over 2,000 km with bit error rate of < 10-9 in a comb-like dispersion profiled fiber (CDPF) loop of 80 km amplifier spacing which corresponds to 1.8 times of dispersion distance. By reducing the average dispersion of the CDPF, error free distance of 3,000 km was obtained.
