How much pulling force for fiber optic cable and copper cable?

Almost all fiber optic cable has a maximum pulling force of 50 lbs., and some types of fiber optic cable are rated for pulling force up to 200 lbs. or more.

The maximum rating for four-pair UTP copper cable is only 25 lbs. That’s because excessive pulling force can easily take the twist out of the copper pairs and create cross talk.
