My cables are copper.

Considering a 1000ft spool of real cat6 cable is under $300, it is quite easy to believe sellers can make a profit selling at or around $2 per foot, which is approx what I paid, plus shipping costs.

Here is a spool with 23awg wire for $200 USD

One could make pretty decent money if you got very fast and did quality work, and had minimal, if any, losses such as bad crimps or damaged wiring.

i second this, if you can get a Cat7 that isn't significantly more expensive than a proper SFTP Cat6 cable then go for Cat7.

one thing to note of when laying down network cables, these cables must be properly installed and terminated to meet specifications.
otherwise ground-loops or even entirely compromising the shielding can occur.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.
