We're building a standalone structure in the backyard that will be used for a backyard office. There's already a trench with a conduit for electrical and a 3/4" conduit for some sort of networking. The trick is figuring out which type of networking cable to run through that conduit.
I was originally planning on pulling fiber out there due to concerns about the proximity of the electrical conduit (they're right on top of each other). I was also recently reading about various shielded forms of ethernet cable and thinking that might be a better/easier choice? The run from the networking cabinet is about 80-100' in total, with about 30' of that inside and about 50' outside via the conduit.
Is fiber the obvious right choice here? Should I bother pulling it myself? I had one local company come out and quote me for pulling the fiber and the price was way higher than I expected. Another local company told me they could run Cat8 through the conduit, but after reading about how to ground the shielding on STP cables I'm not at all sure that's a good idea.
For code purposes I'm in King County in western Washington State.
