With LC to ST termination, this high quality fiber optic patch cable is specifically designed for fast ethernet, ATM and gigabit ethernet applications. The small LC connectors satisfy the need for higher port density both in the telecom room and the work area, and offer twice the port density of traditional SC and ST fiber connectors. The LC connector with its RJ-style latch clip design is easy to engage and disengage, and gives each connection greater durability in resisting pulls, strains, snags, and impacts during cabling installs and maintenance. The ST connector features a bayonet locking system.
The patented injection molding process provides each connection greater durability in resisting pulls, strains and impacts from cabling installs.
Each cable is 100% optically inspected and tested for insertion loss before you receive it. A pull-proof jacket design surrounds the popular 62.5/125 multimode fiber, immune to electrical interference.

I used these cables in a lab environment, and they performed well up to 3gb/S. The 62.5u glass has good flex characteristics, and is reliable on repeat insertions. The jacket is the standard size. If you are going through a wall or ceiling, get the thicker 'Plenum Rated' jacket, for added abrasion resistance.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
