List of device bandwidths / data transfer speeds #

Wikipedia has an excellent list of device bandwidths. It would be nice to pair with a list of maximum distance / cable lengths, maybe something along the lines of:
Type Max Speed Unit Max distance / cable length Notes
Bluetooth wireless PAN (2.4 GHz band) 720 Kbps 10-100 meters Distance depends on device class: Class 1 - 10m, Class 2 - 50m, Class 3 - 100m
Fast Ethernet (100Base-T) 100 Mbps 100 meters  
FireWire 400 (IEEE 1394A) 400 Mbps 4.5 meters Up to 16 cables can be daisy chained using active repeaters
USB 3.0 5 Gbps 5 meters
