I agree.  You can easily get it in lengths of 15 metres, which is about 
50ft (I did this for my house).  If you need to go longer, L-Com is one 
company that makes them in pretty much any length you want, with pretty 
much any termination type that you want (ST, SC, MT-RJ, etc.).  I'd go 
with multi-mode for your application.
