We report what is, to our knowledge, the first experimental demonstration of nearly dispersion-free transmission of sub-100-fs pulses over several tens of meters of fiber. 62-fs pulses are broadened initially and recompressed by a ratio of 300 over a 42-m concatenated fiber link consisting of standard single-mode and dispersion-compensating fibers. This dispersion-compensated fiber link is estimated to have a third-order dispersion ~6 times lower than that of dispersion-shifted fiber.
