Hey everyone,

I'm trying to find the best way to run a single cable run of ~2,000ft. This line will provide a 10Mbps internet connection from one building to another.

I've thought of running cat6 and then placing switches/repeaters along the line to prevent signal loss. However, I was wondering if it would be possible or better to run coax and then have ethernet to coax hand-off at either end?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!
