Re: Future Prooffing home networks
From previous experience I would install conduit ending above all low voltage outlet openings extending into the attic or location where cables can be pulled to in multistory homes. For low voltage outlets I would stub out conduit to be level with or just above the outlet opening extending through the top plate. Use a mud ring rather than a electrical box. That will allow you to install cables or fiber that requires a large bending radius. You might consider two 3/4 inch EMT conduits to each outlet opening. You can easily replace cables in a conduit. Once cables are stapled to the studs it is impossible to easily replace them whether CAT5, Fiber or COAX or some new technology.
