Re: Fibre Installers

This is exactly another reason why...blew 3 switches last summer and a UPS.

Shielded cat 6 paired with a vdsl adapter sounds good.

I do have a longer run using RG6 and a pair of these (»www.veracityglobal.com/products/···ire.aspx) that were previously installed by somebody else, but I am extremely disappointed with them. On top of that, the person who installed them did not put grounding blocks so one of the pair was also destroyed last summer. (There are now grounding blocks). Maybe I'll switch to the startech and give that a try. Has anybody used this product?

WIFI is out of the question, too many trees.

How much could a run of fibre this length cost? (disregarding actual network equipment)

No need for a Ditch-Witch, we got a backhoe on site

No matter which way you go, run it through some bright-orange painted conduit. Neither copper nor fibre can survive the John Deere Cable Locator, but the conduit may buy some breathing room.

Been there, done that.
