RE: fast ethernet limits

putting a shield on cat5 or 6 cable doesn't significantly increase the 
noise rejection vs utp cat 5 at 100mb/s, you're shielding already 
balanced cable pairs.

moreover they're signifcantly harder to install since they need to be 
properly grounded and shielded at both ends.

  In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last
  resort of the scoundrel.  With all due respect to an enlightened but
  inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.
