Do i have 10GB fiber or 1 GB fiber?

stupid question, I know.  

I have fiber that runs between two facilities. It was installed long before I was hired. There is no documentation. How do I know the speed the fiber is? 1 GB or 10GB
The fiber patch cables are LC SC Duplex 62/125 multimode.
OFNR E229789 (UL) 62.5/125

Currently there are 1GB switches at each end of the fiber. I would like to upgrade to 10GB.

right
10GB was around but less popular and more costly 6-7-8 yrs ago

How far are the facilities?  If the cable is over 35M I don't think you'll be able to get 10GB out of it unless you go to the OM3.

it was installed in 2005. i found the proposal from the installation.

800’ of 6 strand 62.5/125 multimode indoor/outdoor fiber optic cable

doesn't specify OM3.

i probably can't get 10GB, right?
