We demonstrate simultaneous stabilized operation of a mode locked ring fiber laser at two wavelengths. At one of the wavelengths the mode locked operation is at 10 GHz and it is at 40 GHz at the second wavelength. The laser has an intracavity LiNbO3 modulator driven at 10 GHz. The 40 GHz pulses are obtained by rational harmonic mode locking. Pulses with widths in 5 to 8 ps range are obtained. Mode locking at 40 GHz for both wavelengths has also been demonstrated.
