<---- Feeling veeery sore. Gawd, now I remember why I stopped doing cable-pulling work.
On Sunday I worked from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM pulling seven drops with four cables each to the different areas around my new house.
Every room will have at least one panel that has four cables: CAT6 Network, CAT6 Phone, RG6 Satellite (TV) and RG6 Cable (TV). I added two extra RG6 cables to the panel in the Family Room media niche so that the TV will have access to an additional Satellite connection (for a dual receiver satellite system) and an antenna that I will put in the attic. The CAT6 is capable of gigabit speeds that are twice as fast as CAT5e. This means that when the technology is finally released I will be able to watch HDTV over my home network. The RG6 cables are quad-shield and rated to 3 GHz. Basically I wired my house for the future. These cables will be able to handle any technology that comes out for at least 10 years.
Everything is labeled. I can grab any cable and tell you where it goes and what it does. Also, all of the cables are neatly tie-wrapped and suspended from the trusses in the roof with them all converging together where I will put in a Network / Media Panel I'm proud to say that the cables look really slick spreading out all over the house in the attic.
I'm still not done though. I still need to pull all of the audio cables for my surround sound system. Those should be MUCH more easy because they are all in the same room and all of the pulls are short.
