 UTP cable
Can data be transfered over long distances in UTP cable? If theres a limit on distance, what is it?
 Answer by Joseph Golan posted 28 Jul 2005
Dear Lando,

Depends on the protocol being used. If you are talking Ethernet, then the limit is 100 meters (328 feet for the channel.

There are a number of other ways to transfer data via specialized modem that can take you out about 2,000 feet.
