Running a ethernet cable paralell to Sky Coax cable

Hi all,

 

I need to connect up two floors of my house, I plan to run either a cat6 or fibre cable from upstairs, down an exterior wall and into my living room.

 

From what I've read, coax cable is sheilded, therefore running a ethernet cable paralell to the sky q cable shouldn't be an issue - has anyone done this? Have you had any issues?

 

Thanks,

Not done it myself but there won't be any issues there.

Satellite dish cable carries a very small current (enough to power the LNB) and so won't generate EMI to be concerned about.  To be honest I've never noticed an adverse effect from having mains cabling running adjacent to ethernet either: it's just not considered good practice.
