What if we have multiple cables going to the same location, is this considered one price for each cable?
Most cable installations have multiple cables, either voice or data, going to same the jack or location. We do not count such cable runs as single installs, therefore pricing is drastically reduced.

What’s the difference between CAT 5 cable and CAT 5e cable?
CAT 5 cable and CAT 5e cable have several differences, the most important are as follows:
- Network support – CAT 5 cable will support 10/100 Ethernet. That is, Ethernet and Fast Ethernet. CAT 5e cable will support Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, and Gigabit Ethernet. CAT 5e Cable is completely backwards compatible, and can be used in any application in which you would normally use CAT 5 cable.
- Less crosstalk – Crosstalk is the electrical interference that results when one wire’s signal effects another wire’s signal. CAT 5e cable has been improved over CAT 5 cable in this respect, and crosstalk has been greatly reduced.
- Bandwidth – This is directly related to network support, in the sense that the bandwidth is the information-carrying capacity of a system. The greater the bandwidth, the greater the information-carrying capacity in a given period of time. CAT 5e cable is rated at 350 megahertz, and it is this increased bandwidth (compared to CAT 5 cable) that allows it to support Gigabit Ethernet.

After viewing BridgeCable.com’s quote it mentions Cabling Certification. What is this?
After our professional install teams have placed your new cabling in place we ensure the cable life. Many local and national companies just install data and voice cabling without testing it. During an installation, cables might be strained or pull to tightly and therefore render the cable useless. After we adjust the cables to their proper end points we thoroughly inspect and test our cable runs. PDF or printed out copies of our tests can be supplied to you and your company after we complete our installation.
Do you have hints for installing cabling ourselves?
