You can run a lot (100 or so) of co-ax cables in a big single sheld and with repeaters, can carry data a very long distance.

I am talking analouge here,

Do cables suffer from XT (cross talk) more then wireless?

If you convert the signals into a digital form, the signals will be less susceptible to XT.

So the only safe computer is a broken computer ha I'll say!

I won't deny that about co-ax. They are definatly the better medium for long-distance transmissions. When it comes to cross talk, I don't know. My gut says no but I can't prove that. I'm sure the sheilded twisted pair are much better than our standard unshielded twisted pair that we normally buy at the store.

Lol pretty much yup. That's why computer security is risk mitigation and management and not just 100% prevention.
