What is the advantage of coaxial cable over STP or UTP?

  • It can run for a longer distance unboosted
  • It is easier to splice.
  • It is less expensive
  • It is easier to install because it is so flexible 

 
What is the advantage of coaxial cable over STP or UTP?

EXPLANATION

Coaxial cable conducts the electrical signal using an inner conductor (usually copper) surrounded by an insulating layer. The whole works are enclosed by a one to four layer shield. This makes coaxial cable thicker than STP or UTP, so harder to install and splice. It also makes it more expensive. But, it has the advantage of being able to carry large quantities of data over a longer distance unboosted.
