Hi there,

I'm looking at a few properties that have more than one building on the section and being the techie geek I am I would want to hook them all into the home network (share internet, file share etc), so I'm doing a bit of homework on what would be needed.

But does anyone know a decent but cheap cable company who can do fibre cables to a specific length and have the connectors pre-done ? (the cable I'd bury in some conduit)

Also a brand/model of a decent but cheap copper to optical media converter that will work with gigabit ?

WiFi I don't want to do because of range, security, interference and bandwidth limitations.

I've got a spare LevelOne media converter and 2 SFPs if you are interested (multimode)

LAN Cabling Products might be another option if you want to install pre-terminated cable yourself, and they might be able to recommend an installer too.

Qualified in business, certified in fibre, stuck in copper, have to keep going  ^_^
