100 feet of fiber optic cable, multi mode = 30.48 meters.

Price per meter: $8.69 - $10.69.

Approximately 31 meters = $270 dollars at $8.69 per meter.


------------------------------------------------------------------

Cat6 CMP Plenum CableĀ sold by 1000 ft = $200

1000 ft / 10 = $200 / 10 = 100 ft at $20

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Cat6 has the advantage of being cheaper than fiber optic.
