The homogeneous and transport properties of a set of metallic fibers were studied. The existence of a plasma frequency was deduced and a precise formula for it was derived. A homogenized system for finite length ohmic wires was derived. Some numerical simulations were made to study the influence of disorder. The persistence of a low-frequency band gap was demonstrated numerically even in the case of a strong disorder. The existence of localized modes was explained in terms of the statistical properties of the medium.
