Install high speed certified cables for what you need now. You can also use an extender that uses CAT 5e or CAT 6 cable. Run everything in conduit and future proof by running some empty conduit now.

Remarkable isn't it? Colm, I didn't know you had the ability to answer questions before they even asked. Truly amazing.

So, I think your question was already answered the first time you asked it (or when your twin asked).

Now, I can understand that sometimes we all don't like the answer we're given. Sometimes we wish we would be given a different answer or hope it has changed later on. However, asking the same question again in hopes the answer will change 15 hours later seems to me to be a waste of everyone's time and actually makes it more difficult to follow the thread.

So, please stick to a single thread and post any follow-up questions (preferably ones that haven't been already answered) in that original thread. It makes is much easier for those of us who give a few minutes of our time each day to answer the well-written and throught-out questions that appear here.
