Good Afternoon.

10 Years ago it was $125 installed, up to 332 feet. That is my wire, my jack, your patch panel. Jumpers extra.

I hope this helps.

Permit me to add few line and a correction to be made.

Try this 1

The maximum length of Cat 5 and 6 cable it 100mts (328 feet).

But the recommended length without a repeater is 90mts

Good Luck

According to the ANSI/TIA/EIA standard for category 5e copper cable (TIA/EIA 568-5-A[8]), the maximum length for a cable segment is 100 metres (330 ft)

The specifications for 10BASE-T networking specify a 100 (333 feet) metre length between active devices. This allows for 90 metres of solid-core permanent wiring, two connectors and two stranded patch cables of 5 metres, one at each end.

What? Me, help?
