The effect of strong mode coupling on modal dispersion in optical fibers has been investigated. The pulse dispersion turns out to be qualitatively different from the one relative to the weak-coupling case, while it exhibits a drastic reduction as compared with that of the uncoupled case. The role of the initial pulse length and of the source coherence time has been elucidated.
