There is a national (US) standard within the BICSI www.bicsi.org suggesting
each and every home have a very special voice+data cable setup.
Of course it includes fiber, making it a very expensive cable (I'd imagine).
I think it's like 2 cat7 strands, a cat 3 strand and 2 MM fiber runs.
Good luck trying to terminate them.
But, anyone could cut the ends off and then get your professional involved.
As for where to get the supplies? Pros use giants like Anixter, Graybar,
and Westell, among others.
Not a chance. HD wanted 39 cents/ft for UL fire rated RG6 cable. The
local electrician charged me 10 cents a foot for the RG6 and Cat 5e.
Home Depot price wasnt even "in the neighborhood". Same thing went for 18-4
You want cheap? ... Most of the cable is available on eBay.... You
won't always know that your getting quality, however...
usually has good prices on connectors.
Also, the following site has interesting and unusual products that you
might have trouble finding elsewhere...
