Fiber costs are greater than cable but the prices seem high. If you have a 250ft cat5e drop the cost to install would be $1250. That's a lot for one cable. Fiber on the other hand might cost $5/ft. I will look to see what the prices are around here.
When having network cabling prof installed, would these numbers seem out of
cat5e $ 5/foot
I know, MM v SM v POF, plenum-riser-PVC, and why not roll your own ...
Just doing cost comparision, and need figures for future planning, feel free to
hit me off list.
