Phone wire along side of electrical wiring


Quick easy question, just want to make sure:
Is it okay to run my telephone wire along side my electrical wiring on the way up to the phone jacks?
'Wanting to make sure that immediate proximity of phone wire to electrical wire does not interfere with good telephone operation and reception.
Thanks!

This can result in interference so it is better not to run them so close.

Place them about a foot apart. As for telephone wiring, Cat-5e & cat-6 is more commonly used, and does not have the problems as Cat-3 does, when placed next to electrical lines.

thanks for help


Thanks guys:
I'm running the wire separately. It's cat5, but regardless it's safely on it's own path and crosses romex instead of paralleling.
Thanks for help,
James
